IAF officer arrested on espionage charge

An Indian Air Force (IAF) official was arrested on Thursday for sharing classified information with the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) after being "honey-trapped", the Hindustan Times reported on Friday. The 51-year-old officer allegedly used his smartphone to take pictures of classified documents at the IAF headquarters and shared it on WhatsApp. The arrest has been confirmed by DCP Special Cell Pramod Khushwaha. "He also shared a classified document about the forthcoming Air Force exercise with them, which is likely to help enemies and will affect the sovereignty and integrity of India". "The officer has been slapped charges under Official Secrets Act", said a source. The identities of the air force officer or the woman have been kept secret as probe continues.

He was detained by the IAF for investigation on January 31 after his activities were found suspicious.

While the Delhi Police has now taken him into custody, the IAF officials are also probing if Marwaha could be a part of a larger espionage ring.
