Pakistani national Nand Lal Maharaj, who was arrested on charges of being an ISI agent, operated two accounts on Facebook for obtaining strategic information from people living in the border districts of Barmer and Jaisalmer, police said on Saturday.

The spy, also known as Nand Lal Garg, revealed during interrogation that he used the two accounts to communicate with his sources in the border areas.

Maharaj had uploaded pictures that he had taken of several places in Jaisalmer in one of those accounts. The account also contained pictures of some places in Pakistan.

Police superintendent Gaurav Yadav today cautioned people against speaking with unknown persons on social media. He also appealed to them to inform police if they come to know of any suspicious persons.

Maharaj had been arrested near the Indo-Pak border in Jaisalmer in Rajasthan earlier this month, with police claiming to have recovered classified information from him.

He is a resident of Sangad district in Pakistan and had come to India earlier this month on visa.
