Indian diplomat 'spied for ISI' in Pakistan
Tuesday, April 27, 2010 07:40:30 PM, Agencies
New Delhi: A Second Secretary-level woman diplomat working in the Indian High Commission in Islamabad has been arrested in New Delhi for allegedly passing on information to Pakistani intelligence agencies.
Simultaneously, the station head of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) in Islamabad R K Sharma has also come under the scanner, official sources said.
A promotee officer of Ministry of External Affairs, 53-year-old Madhuri Gupta, was arrested here four days back after she was summoned to Delhi on the pretext of discussions on the current SAARC summit meeting held in Thimpu, Bhutan, the sources said.
The officer, a Second Secretary working in the Mission for nearly three years, is alleged to have been passing on information from the Mission to her contacts in ISI till her movements came under surveillance of Intelligence Bureau sleuths.
Home Secretary G K Pillai said Gupta had been passing information to Pakistani agencies. "She has been arrested," he said.
The sources said Gupta, a spinster, is alleged to have been taking information from the RAW station head in Islamabad, which was passed to the Pakistani spy agencies.
The sources said that the role of Sharma had also come under scanner for allegedly abusing his position and passing information to Gupta. However, it was not clear whether he knew the woman officer's real designs, the sources said.
Gupta, who was arrested upon her arrival four days ago, was produced again before a court yesterday which has remanded her to further police custody of another five days.
