New Delhi: An Indian Army clerk, posted in an infantry battalion in Madhya Pradesh’s Mhow, has been arrested in a joint operation by the Intelligence Bureau, Military Intelligence and Police.

He is suspected to have been virtually honeytrapped by enemy intelligence agencies. A probe is underway. 

Reports claimed that the Army clerk, who was posted in an infantry battalion in Mhow, had come in contact with a Pakistan-based Facebook profile of a woman who had posed as an international journalist. The two started talking on the social media website and in the process, exchanged details and information about the movement of troops and military exercises via Facebook and Whatsapp, media reports stated quoting sources.

Subsequently, the clerk was purportedly given the task of providing information pertaining to location, movement, and exercise related to the Indian Army. Sources claimed that he used to ascertain information based on his knowledge and by using his contacts in the Army. 

The military intelligence had put the Army clerk under surveillance for the last six months before he was finally arrested, as per reports. Authorities are investigating the individual’s links with Pakistani agencies, information passed, favors received and involvement of others. They are also probing if he had received the money in exchange for the information. 

As per reports, the 26-year-old Army clerk belongs to Bihar and was posted in an Army unit in Mhow. A team of ATS, MP police arrested the individual on May 15 after garnering credible evidence following months-long intelligence.
