An ex-employee from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited has been arrested for spying. It has been alleged that the employee was leaking secret information on Indian Fighter Jets.
The Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) has confirmed the accusation. ATS has also confirmed that it was a ‘honey-trap’ set by ISI.
A woman operating from Pakistan was in touch with Deepak Shirsat, the accused, to lure in information from him. The woman allegedly worked for ISI, and ATS says that it has proof to prove the same. They have retrieved chats between the woman and Deepak Shirsat.
Since Deepak was working with HAL that is responsible for some indigenous aircraft, he was found leaking that sensitive information to the ISI stooge. A lot of pictures were exchanged by the two which the ATS has now access to.
