The man, identified only as Ranjit S in accordance with German privacy laws, is accused of spying on members of a Sikh organisation in Germany in early 2013, prosecutors said in a statement on Monday.

He then passed on information to "an Indian secret service" and was paid for his information, the prosecutors said without providing any further details. Prosecutors say the suspect was charged in Koblenz in February.
