Former army official working for ISI nabbed

Monday January 31, 2011 07:40:26 PM, IANS

Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Police have arrested a former Indian Army official who was allegedly working for Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) agency and providing information about vital installations of the Indian armed forces, a police official said here Monday.

The accused, hailing from Palampur town in Kangra district, is a retired honorary captain, police said.

"Acting on a tip off, S.S. Guleria was arrested from the Chandimadir area Sunday night," Additional Director General of Police I.D. Bhandari told reporters.

Chandimandir is the headquarters of the Indian Army's Western Command, located in Chandigarh.

Bhandari said Guleria -- who retired from service last month -- was working for the ISI and was regularly getting money through illegal ‘hawala' channels. He was arrested from his army quarters in the Western Command which he had not yet vacated.

He was brought to Shimla for interrogation Monday afternoon.

Before his arrest, police arrested Bhagwan Dass, another ex-serviceman from Kangra district Jan 27, who was also supplying sensitive information to the ISI.

Amrik Singh, the prime suspect in supplying ‘hawala' money to the ISI agents, was also in police custody. Both Dass and Guleria were getting money from Singh.

Police suspect that Singh had given over Rs.1 crore to various ISI agents in the past six months.
