Khan, has been passing information to Pakistan Intelligence Operative, for the past one year.

“Documents ranging from a basic outline of the training camp along with marked entry and exit points, strength of each unit and details of platoon movements to secret information about the nature of weapons bought by the Indian Forces, logs of the number of fighter planes possessed along with their specifications and details on the kind of training being given to the personnel were allegedly leaked to PIO,” a police source said.

Khan, is believed to have built a strong network in the defence forces including the Army, BSF and the Air Force. The police suspect that he has strategically placed his sources at important camps, headquarters of the defence forces who leak secret information to him in exchange for money. “The arrest of Abdul Rasheed is only the tip of the iceberg. We suspect that Khan has an entire network of spies working for him. We are analysing the documents recovered. The documents will lead us to other moles,” police said.
