    Around the time last month when the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) was alerted about the possibility of one of their officers being involved in espionage, another sensitive counter-intelligence operation involving the Ministry of Defence (MoD) was in progress.

    For over two weeks now, top Government sources say, an Army Major has been kept in “safe custody” of the Military Intelligence (MI). The officer—posted in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands—is alleged to have passed on classified information to Pakistan.

    The first tip-off in what could develop into another espionage scandal, according to sources, came from American authorities. Suspicious internet traffic first came to the notice of American intelligence agencies when intercepts showed a user in Andaman and Nicobar Islands had dispatched a picture of a serving Indian Brigadier, who was attending a training programme in the US, to Pakistan.

    Indian agencies quickly zeroed in on the officer and a quiet operation was planned to call him to New Delhi. Sources say the officer pleaded ignorance of the traffic from his computer to Pakistan saying it could have been generated by some virus or unknown software.

    However, suspicion persisted since the Major’s computer had been recently formatted and cleaned of all contents. An early forensic examination done in New Delhi revealed the dispatch of classsified military information, some of which should not have been in the officer’s possession. The hard disk of the officer’s computer has since been sent by military authorities to a Hyderabad laboratory for accessing the erased contents.

    “I do not have any information yet. I will have to find the details and then can get back to you,” Army spokesperson Col S Om Singh said when contacted for a reaction.

    Both Defence Minister A.K. Antony and Home Minister P. Chidambaram are learnt to be aware of the developments in the case, given the serious implications involved.

    Seems Indians are on a roll these days. Forget it, there'll be many more moles. Money is indeed name of the game.

    Anyways, had this news been the reverse, that a Pakistani officer had been caught spying for India and our media reported it, a million so called "educated" upper middle class, confused idiots would be crying that this is not in the "national interest" and "Geo is Jew" BS. Our people are yet to understand what constitutes "national security" and they have to learn to accept whistle blowing and media trials.

    It's not as if the reverse has never happened, it is never reported.

    PS:- No our "muslim" soldiers do not defect arguments. Just trying to make my point.

    So now you will come up with hypothetical situations and use figments of your own imagination to lambast theoretical reactions of Pakistanis under mythical scenarios? Don't you get enough threads based on reality where you are able to get up on the pedestal and wave your righteous finger at the rest of us?

    Well by the lord, if this is true and not something puffed up by the Krazy Kops Indian system, this here is going to truly set the cat among the pigeons.

    An IA major no less.

    A three ring circus, in fact!

    I guess they are tired of the 'Superpower' india and want to harm their own country. Speaks a lot when their own people in respected positions are helping the country that is considered their mortal enemy.
