Madhya Pradesh ATS has arrested a Pakistani spy, who was allegedly a member of the BJP’s IT cell.
According to ABP News, 11 Pakistani spies nabbed by Madhya Pradesh ATS on Friday, also included Dhruv Saxena, who has been with the BJP’s IT Cell since last year.
Madhya Pradesh is governed by the BJP’s Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
The arrested spies are accused of taking out confidential information on government of India and sending them across the border to Pakistan. According to reports, Saxena chose to sell the information for earning quick buck.
Reacting to the development, veteran Congress leader, Digvijay Singh tweeted, “Not a single Muslim among the ISI agents arrested in Bhopal. Do ponder, dear bhakts of Modi.”

ATS Chief Sanjeev Shami, who’s credited with busting the racket, had made the disclosure about the arrests in a special press conference.
Time of India reported that the suspects were involved in espionage, money laundering and fraud, say police.
Besides the crime of spying against the country, they also caused significant loss to the telecom department.
“They were running a parallel telecom exchange, enabling cross-border handlers posing as senior Army officers to call up military personnel posted in Jammu and Kashmir and dig out details of operations, deployment and installations,” said Shami.
