Parvez allegedly honey-trapped Indian Army soldiers through fake identity to collect confidential and strategic information and passed those to the ISI, which gave him financial support, the officer said.
Accused in Contact With ISI Handlers
During questioning, Pervez revealed that he was in contact with ISI handlers and had travelled to Pakistan 17 times in the last 18 years, he said.
ISI gave all necessary support for passing confidential information, Mishra added.
