Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Police’s Anti-Terrorism Squad arrested an Inter-Services Intelligence agent in Lucknow on Tuesday in a joint operation along with the Rajasthan Police’s CID wing, officials said.
The ISI agent has been identified as Jamaluddin, resident of Ghazipur in east Uttar Pradesh, and is said to be funding other similar agents across Uttar Pradesh and other states.
An ATS official told IANS that he was getting continuous flow of money from the UAE and was under the radar of investigation and anti-terror agencies for some time now.
Jamaluddin was tracked down after a money trail to another agent, Govardhan Singh, a resident of Rajasthan’s Pokhran who was arrested on December 27, 2015 for allegedly passing off information about activities of the Indian Army to Pakistan, led back to him.
“We are currently interrogating him for more leads and he will be taken on remand on Wednesday,” an official further said.
