Suspected Pak spy arrested from Jammu and Kashmir
Security forces on Saturday arrested a suspected Pakistani spy from Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba sector on Saturday. Two Pakistan sim cards and a map showing the deployment of security forces were recovered from him, NDTV has reported.
As per the Daily Excelsior, the intelligence agencies had received information that Bodhraj, a resident of Arnia in Jammu district was passing on vital information about security forces deployment to Pakistan.
The arrest came on a day when seven Pakistani Rangers or paramilitary soldiers were killed by the Border Security Force or BSF along the International Border in Hiranagar sector in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan has denied any casualties.
After 19 soldiers were killed at an army base in Uri in Kashmir last month, Indian forces crossed the Line of Control to target staging areas for terrorists. Since then tensions between the two countries have reached paramount. Cease fire violations along the LoC have also jumped up in the last one month period.
