NEW DELHI: Delhi police said on Tuesday they have arrested a former Indian Air Force officer on charges of passing secrets to Pakistan's spy service.

Police said the man, who is accused of giving details of air force exercises to the  Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), had fallen victim to a "honey trap".

"Ranjith KK has accepted to have passed air force-related information pertaining to a recent air force exercise, movements of aircraft and deployment of various units in air force," said Ravindra Yadav, Delhi police joint commissioner of crime, in a statement.
