They send their spies into our country, and then in return, we too operate deep undercover on the other side of the border. We drink their champagne, hide behind several veils and guises, operate a network of agents, masquerading often as a driver, or dentist or perhaps as one lovely albeit underrated John Abraham film Romeo Akbar Walter put showed it, even as the odd flower seller! The Joker could be anyone, in any disguise, and could be upto anything! The only thing being, he should not get caught at any cost, for that would lead to the total collapse of a secret tunnel of information supplied to the other side of the enemy line! But what has time and again, hurt India, however, is the fact that several spies linked to Pakistan’s dangerously dreadful ISI have been found operating in India.
Pakistan still doesn’t learn from its mistakes. Perhaps never will.
And in what can be called a strange occurrence in India, the Punjab Police successfully busted a ring of ISI-linked Indian spies that were covertly passing out useful Indian information to the dangerous side of the border.
If you find this piece of news as shocking as I did, then the following is what you need to know. The Network 18 news service, in its reportage on the shocker happened to furnish the following information:
The accused have been identified as Sepoy Harpreet Singh (23) and Sepoy Gurbhej Singh (23). Harpreet, who hails from Cheecha, a village in Amritsar, was posted in Anantnag and had joined the Indian Army in 2017. He belongs to the 19 Rashtriya Rifles. Gurbhej is a native of village Punian in Tarn Taran, and belongs to 18 Sikh Light Infantry. He was working as a clerk in Kargil. He had joined the Indian Army in 2015.
Director-General of Police (DGP) Punjab Dinkar Gupta, said that Jalandhar Rural Police led by SSP Naveen Singla, while investigating an NDPS case, recovered confidential and secret documents related to the functioning and deployment of the Indian Army from cross-border drug smuggler Ranvir Singh, who was arrested with 70 grams of heroin on May 24.
He said that, during interrogation, Ranvir disclosed that he got these documents from Harpreet, who was his friend, as they both belong to the same village. “Ranvir motivated and lured Harpreet with financial benefits for sharing defence related classified documents, following which the latter induced his friend Gurbhej into such anti-national spying activities,” said Gupta and added that since Gurbhej was working as a clerk in 121 Infantry Brigade Headquarters in Kargil, he could get easy access to these classified documents containing both strategic and tactical information relating to the Indian Army.
The above told, one can be truly glad that the patriot cops on our side were able to crack open the can of worms, which Pakistan had been harbouring with much gusto and shameful cavalier attitude in its mean workings against India.
But that said, it cannot be possible that a similar incident may never recur in the course of the future. After all, that is what espionage is all about!
