CHANDIGARH: An unemployed man hailing from Indian Punjab was arrested on Wednesday in Amritsar on charges of spying for Pakistan, according to Times of India.
The Special Operations Cell of Punjab Police took Tarwinder Singh into custody from Attari Road. He hails from the Lopoke area in Amritsar.
Indian police claim they seized a Pakistani SIM card, photographs of restricted areas in India, Indian Army manuals and sketches of military installations in Amritsar from Singh.
The man allegedly told investigators that he was asked to spy for Pakistan when he went to the neighbouring country in April this year as part of a religious group.
He was asked to get details of army installations near the border in Punjab, movements of army units and information about army exercises. He was also asked to photograph army installations and vehicles.
