Man spying for ISI caught in Pokhran

Barely two days after the conclusion of the IAF’s air exercise ‘Iron Fist’ in Pokhran, a suspected spy has been caught passing information of the war games to an ISI operative in Pakistan.

Sumer Khan (34), a computer expert, was taken into custody by army intelligence from his house in Pokhran yesterday and was being grilled by security agencies, SP Jaisalmer Pankaj Kumar Chaudhary said on Monday.

Intelligence sources said that Sumer was sharing information of the IAF’s exercise with his maternal uncle in Rahim Yar Khan in Pakistan for the past few days.

His uncle has been working for Inter-Services Intelligence for the last few years, they said.

Sumer is currently under the custody of the Joint Interrogation Cell in Jaipur where the security agencies are questioning him.

The sources said he was caught after his calls to Pakistan were intercepted by the army intelligence and IB.
