JAIPUR: An Indian man has been arrested on charges of spying for Islamabad on the recently concluded Indian war games, police said on Monday.

The 35-year-old man is accused of passing on details of the exercises held by the Indian Air Force on Friday in the western desert state of Rajasthan near the Indian border with Pakistan, senior state police officer DS Dinkar told AFP.

Dinkar identified the man as an Indian national called Sumaar Khan and said he was allegedly spying for Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, "passing information related to Indian defence installations and military activities".

Police alleged the man used mobile phones and Internet to transmit information but did not say when he was arrested.

NDTV reported that Khan was arrested from his home in Pokhran on Sunday morning, following interception of his calls to Pakistan.

The report further stated that he frequently traveled to Pakistan and is alleged to have passed on documents pertaining to the Indian defence structure.
