Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) will question alleged ISI agent Sudhanshu Sudhakar arrested from Patna with sensitive information on missiles and troop deployment in Jammu and Kashmir.
"Our team will interrogate Sudhakar once the Bihar police completes its investigation," Gujarat ATS chief Ajay Tomar told PTI.
"He (Sudhakar) has some Gujarat connections which we need to verify and get details," he said.
Sudhakar, a dismissed jawan of the Indian Army, was allegedly carrying important military secrets relating to the Indo-Pak border and was booked under the Official Secrets Act. He was arrested in Patna on Monday with documents about troop deployment in J&K and Secunderabad in Andhra Pradesh besides information about missiles.
ATS sources said that Sudhakar, who had revealed to his interrogators that he was in touch with six to seven army personnel from whom he used to collect military secrets, had visited Kutch district of the state.
According to Bihar police, Sudhakar was on his way to Kathmandu to share secrets with an ISI module when he was arrested.
