Indian couple stand trial for spying on Sikhs
An Indian couple accused of spying on Sikh and Kashmiri communities in Germany went on trial on Thursday on charges that carry a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. The couple were charged in March and have been named only as Manmohan S, 50, and his wife Kanwal Jit K, 51. “Manmohan S agreed... to provide information about Germany’s Sikh community and Kashmir movement and their relatives to an employee of the Indian foreign intelligence service Research and Analysis Wing,” prosecutors said. His wife allegedly joined him in monthly meetings with the Indian intelligence officer between July and December 2017, for which the couple were paid €7,200 (Dh29,300).
