Odia Jawan Honey-Trapped, Arrested for Leaking ‘Crucial Info’

Bhubaneswar: Odia Sepoy Vichitra Behera was arrested by the Rajasthan Police in an alleged honey-trap case where he is accused of leaking crucial information to a female Pakistani ISI agent.

According to officials, the jawan was going to his village in Ganjam from Pokhran when intelligence officials took him into custody from Jodhpur railway station on Tuesday.

As per reports, Vichitra and the female met on social media about two years ago. The ISI agent masked her number and the jawan believed that the number was Indian. As such he took her to be an Indian and shared crucial information on army deployment in Rajasthan, army equipment and other crucial details.

Vichitra was first taken into custody and then later arrested. He will be forwarded to court soon. Meanwhile, his associate is also suspected to have transferred vital information. He is yet to be arrested. The investigation in the matter is underway.
