Confidential information related to the army has been allegedly leaked out from Jhansi Sadar SDM’s office to foreign agents. The UP Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) officials suspect the role of some insiders in the leak and interrogated some employees of the SDM office on Friday. The sleuths also seized some documents, computers and pen drives in this connection.

Inspector general (IG) of police, ATS, Asim Arun said the probe so far revealed that details related to movement of troops in and from Jhansi Cantonment area have been leaked. The IG said they were sure that some employees of the SDM office leaked the information. It is, however, yet to be ascertained whether they leaked it unknowingly or intentionally for profit, he added.

Arun said the employees leaked the information to unknown persons who made Internet calls to them from abroad. He said it is yet to be confirmed whether any of the ‘recipients’ of information visited the office or not. He said required action will be taken on the basis of evidence after the probe.

So far no arrest has been made in the matter, he added.
