Police and military intelligence sleuths nabbed two alleged ISI agents, who were passing vital defence information to Pakistan through the Internet, late Thursday night.
The two alleged agents -- Mohammad Naseer and Fazal -- had been living in India under fake names and had passed on maps and other information to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency, they said.
Naseer, a resident of Hathoor district in Pakistan, had been living in rented accommodation here under the name of Sudhir Kumar for the past eight months. Police seized a fake matriculation certificate, ration card and driving license from him.
Fazal had been living at Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, the officials said.
A case under provisions of the Official Secrets Act and Foreigners Act were registered against them, district police chief Varinder Singh said.
