A man, believed to be the key link in a Pakistani espionage ring which used international calls to spy on Indian military operations, has been arrested from Delhi.
Jabbar, from Jama Masjid area of national capital, was arrested in a joint operation by Delhi police and MP ATS late on Saturday night, MP police sources told HT.
He is likely to be produced before a special court in Bhopal at 3 pm on Sunday. It’s the 14th arrest in the case since February 9.
Jabbar’s grilling revealed that he was the crucial link with ISI operatives in MP and Jammu and Kashmir. He helped route the lottery and online fraud money parked in banks of Satna and Rewa district of MP to operatives in Jammu and Kashmir via his couriers and hawala.
The arrest of two ISI operatives, Satwindar and Dadu in November 2016 from Jammu had thrown the lid off a Chinese SIM box-enabled international call ring in UP and MP which was being used by Pakistani handlers to fund spying and terror in J&K.
Since last week, 13 men linked to the ring have been arrested in MP. The arrested men include ruling BJP leader Dhruv Saxena.
Jabbar was the key link of the racket working in tandem with Satna (MP) resident Balram and Rajjan Tiwari.
On Saturday evening, Chhattarpur (MP) native Sahyog Singh became the 13th person to be arrested in the case by MP ATS.
