Virtually honey-trapped by ISI, Army jawan arrested in Jaisalmer over espionage charges
An Indian Army jawan posted in a tank regiment in Jaisalmer has been arrested by the Rajasthan Police after he was allegedly found to be virtually honey trapped by Pakistan-based ISI operatives on social media and passing critical military information to them. "The jawan has been arrested in Jaisalmer by the Rajasthan Police and the Army is providing all possible assistance to the civilian authorities in this investigation," Defence PRO Colonel Sambit Ghosh told ANI over the phone. The jawan, identified as Sombir, belongs to Haryana and was posted in the Armoured Corps of the Indian Army. Sources in the Army said the jawan was in touch with a suspected ISI spy using the profile name of ‘Anika Chopra’ on Facebook and was chatting regularly on the social media and exchanging details and information about the jawan’s armoured unit and its movement.
