The SSOC release further informed that their investigations revealed that the alleged accused was allured by the PIO into espionage activities and he was tasked by her to gather and share information about Pathankot, Amritsar Cantonments, and Pathankot airbase.
“The accused ended up sharing some classified documents and photographs of Cantonment areas via encrypted apps” said the release adding that during preliminary inspection of his mobile phone, many classified documents and photographs had been found. In lieu of the job he did for Pak ISI, the PIO had paid him money through various means.
