A man, alleged to be a spy, was detained on Sunday by the intelligence wing of Rajasthan Police near the Indo-Pak border in Jaisalmer district.

On a tip-off, Hazi Khan was detained by sleuths of the intelligence department from Kishangarh near Tanot Mata Temple in Jaisalmer.

“He is currently being interrogated by our team in Jodhpur,” additional director general (Intelligence) Utkal Ranjan Sahoo said.

Sahoo said Khan was under scanner for the last few days and was detained on Sunday in a case of spying and sharing secret information.

He is resident of Jaisalmer district and his in-laws live in Pakistan.

Last week, police arrested a Jaisalmer resident, Sadiq, who was allegedly planning to share information with Pakistani intelligence agencies.

Police has seized some documents and lodged a case against him under the Official Secrets Act.
