Jaipur: Three post office employees have been detained in Rajasthan’s Barmer for leaking important information about the army to Pakistan. The men were picked by Rajasthan Intelligence Bureau for passing on details about movement of troops which they received through posts, India Today reported.
Post master Kishan Pal, post office inspector Vasudeo Meghwal and post office computer operator Narendra Sharma are being quizzed by IB officers.
Many similar raids have been conducted in the Balotra city of Barmer simultaneously by Rajasthan Police acting on the information provided by the Intelligence Bureau.
As per initial reports, Rajasthan Intelligence Bureau along with the Military Intelligence officers are interrogating the suspect at Pokhran Police Station.
Since morning the investigating officials were searching the said post office in Pokharan and a short while ago the officials declared that they have nabbed Singh who was allegedly spying for Pakistan, the report said.
Singh is also getting financial assistance from Pakistan in lieu of the spying activity, the report added. In December 2015, Rajasthan’s Anti-Terrorism Squad had arrested a former Army man for allegedly leaking confidential information pertaining to the Indian Army to Pakistan’s ISI.
