The police Special Task Force (STF) on Wednesday arrested a man suspected to be spying for Pakistan and other countries, an official said.
Saikh Badal (59) was arrested by the STF in the afternoon from near the Regional Passport Office in Kolkata.
He has been charged with several offences, including waging or attempting to wage war against the country, said an STF officer.
With this arrest, the STF has so far nabbed six suspected agents of Pakistan’s ISI from the city.
A week ago, a BSF personnel and a Pakistani intelligence operative arrested for obtaining secret information related to India’s national security and sharing it with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
Kafaitullah Khan alias Master Raja (44) and Border Security Force (BSF) head constable Abdul Rasheed were arrested from Jammu on November 26.
Khan was given specific tasks by ISI, mainly relating to the deployment of security forces and Indian Air Force operations.
