A clerical staff attached to a senior Army officer was recently held for allegedly passing sensitive information to Pakistan's ISI.
Ramzan Khan, a native of Rajasthan who was posted at Delhi for the last three years, was handed over to the Army, and his court martial proceedings initiated.
Central intelligence agencies detected his role in June and kept him under surveillance for months before alerting the Army intelligence. Classified documents and cash were seized from his possession, said officials.
Khan has been allegedly supplying sensitive information, including logos of battalions and their movement, to the ISI, said officials.
Sources said Khan was reportedly working for ISI agents at Pakistan Embassy and met them several times to trade classified information. He was given a hefty sum in exchange of classified information. He planned to invest this money in construction of mobile towers.
Khan's questioning revealed the names of his three handlers.
