Back in December, a 21-year-old Pakistani youth was taken into custody by Indian Border Security Force after he allegedly crossed the India-Pakistan International Border near Rajasthan’s Sriganganagar district.
Earlier reportedly another 15-year-old Pakistani boy was caught by Indian Border Security Force personnel near the international border at Khavda in Gujrat’s Kutch district. The boy had crossed the border fencing. Boy hailed from Sindh Sahichok in the Tharparkar District of Pakistan. “As per a preliminary inquiry by the BSF, the boy mentioned that he had quarreled with his family members and ran away from his home,” the officials said. The boy was later handed over to the local police.
In another incident, an Indian engineer allegedly leaked classified information on India’s missile program after he was lured into marriage by an alleged ‘Pakistani spy’, Indian media reported.
Indian authorities arrested 29-year-old Dukka Mallikarjuna Reddy on charges of leaking sensitive information on India’s missile development programs to a suspected Pakistani spy, who posed as a woman working with a UK-based defense journal.
According to the details, Reddy, an employee of the Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL), was at the time working on an advanced naval system program. Due to his job nature, the Indian engineer had access to defense manufacturing units – to inspect work progress – as well as the specialized components used in the missile development.
He met a woman on Facebook named “Natasha Rao” who told him that her father served in the Indian Air Force (IAF).
