Honey trapped BSF trooper leakes secret info, arrested in Noida
Lucknow: A Border Security Force (BSF) Constable was arrested on Wednesday in Noida for passing 'secret and sensitive' information to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, officials said.
The arrest was made by the Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) of Uttar Pradesh Police.
The trooper has been identified as Achyutanand Mishra and officials said he was 'honey trapped' by 'a person who used a fake ID of a woman' in social networking site Facebook.
He was also in touch with ISI agent on whatsApp, who disguised himself as a woman and extorted all the vital information from the BSF trooper.
He was befriended by a woman ISI agent.
Briefing the media, Director General of Police O.P. Singh said Mishra was arrested from Sector 18 in Noida, adjoining Delhi.
Hailing from Reva in Madhya Pradesh, Mishra had been passing off secret and sensitive information to the Pakistani intelligence agency, Singh said.
Singh has also told media that during interrogation, Mishra admitted to sharing details pertaining to vital installations, operation briefing, maps and locations of the BSF and Indian Army training camps. Many other details were also leaked.
It is worth mentioning that a BSF jawan was brutally killed in cross-border terrorism by Pakistan, where the neighbouring country tried to decapitate the jawan by slitting his throat.
