The report said he started sharing country’s secret information with ISI to earn money.
Congress leader Digvijaya Singh tweeted about the matter and lashed out at PM Modi supporters. Of the 11 ISI agents arrested in Bhopal, not even one was Muslim. Modi supporters think over it," Digvijaya Singh said in the tweet.

Those arrested were allegedly operating parallel telephone exchanges using Chinese equipment and SIM-boxes, reported Hindustan Times.
All the 11 men have been booked under provisions of the Indian Telegraph Act, besides Section 122 and 123 of Indian Penal Code (IPC), which deal with collecting arms, information and other things for waging war against the country.
5 men of the 11 were nabbed from Gwalior, 3 from Bhopal, 2 from Jabalpur and 1 from Satna, the report added.
MP ATS inspector general Sanjeev Shami said that the man arrested from Satna and identified as Balram is allegedly the mastermind of the racket.
“Investigations revealed that Satna (MP) resident Balram was funding the activities of the duo held in Jammu. Balram, who was in constant touch with Pak-based handlers, used multiple bank accounts to fund the anti-national operations of the duo arrested last year in Jammu,” he said.
