Rajasthan police nabs Army personnel, suspecting him of spying

In yet another suspected case of a armed force personnel honey-trapped, Rajasthan police has made an arrest.

The defence personnel has been identified as posted in the Tank regiment in Jaisalmer.

Police have reasons to believe that the Army jawan was allegedly found to be honey-trapped by Pakistan-based ISI operatives on social media and thus he was passing critical military information to them.

The jawan, identified as Sombir, belongs to Haryana and was posted in the Armoured Corps of the Indian Army.

According to Army sources, the jawan was in constant touch with a suspected ISI spy who was using a fake profile name of ‘Anika Chopra’ on Facebook.

It is said that post the arrest of the jawan, the Army is now tracking multiple accounts of officers and jawans to determine if the Pakistani spy account was in touch with other personnel to extract valuable information from them.
