New Delhi: Just as Indian agencies are trying to decipher the role of a US-based Lashkar duo in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks comes the busting of another Pakistan-sponsored espionage ring.
The Delhi Police arrested a Pakistani spy just as he was set to board a flight to Saudi Arabia along with a set of vital documents relating to some defence installations including Ghaziabad’s Hindon airbase and Meerut cantonment area.
Acting on a tip-off from Intelligence Bureau, the police arrested him at IGI airport on Saturday when he was trying to board a flight using a fake passport bearing the name of Aamir Ali.
Though spy rings and sleeper cells of Pakistani intelligence agencies are busted regularly in one or the other part of the country, Aamir alias Jabbad alias Abdul is considered to be a prize catch as police seized a number of vital documents from his possession indicating that he was a leader of some bigger ring spread across central and western Uttar Pradesh.
He was considered so significant a catch that the police immediately briefed home ministry about the arrest and the seizures. His arrest was confirmed to reporters by home secretary G K Pillai on Sunday.
Though Pillai did not give any details, sources said Aamir was a highly trained Pakistani spy and was staying in Shahdara since the past three years. “He is quite computer savvy and was extensively using Internet to send information,” a source said.
Aamir had allegedly sent information on Ghaziabad’s Hindon airbase and Meerut cantonment area to Pakistan through emails. The 40-year-old spy, said to be a resident of Karachi, had earlier spent a few years in Lucknow and Ghaziabad.
Besides scanning his contacts in the Capital, Delhi Police has sent separate teams to different cities in UP to trace his links with local residents who might have helped him.
Raids in Mumbai
New Delhi/Mumbai: Intensifying its probe into suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba operative David Coleman Headley’s role in the Mumbai terror attacks, NIA sleuths on Sunday conducted raids at several places in Mumbai and are likely to question Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s son Rahul over his alleged friendship with the Pakistan-born American who is in US custody. P 11 Mumbai gym under scanner NIA Team Examines Records Of Moksh Which Headley Visited
Mumbai: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) team is examining the records of high-profile gym Moksh which Lashkar-e-Taiba’s suspected operative, David Coleman Headley, used to visit. NIA is also probing Headley’s links with some US nationals, who, too, used to come to the fitness centre.

An NIA team, led by additional director-general of police S Balaji and comprising two superintendents of police, is camping in Mumbai. The team is assisted by the Mumbai crime branch and special branch, Mumbai police commissioner D Sivanandhan said on the sidelines of a seminar on terror security at Hotel Trident.
The NIA, on November 11, registered a case against Headley and his associate, Tahawwar Hussain Rana, under the various sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and for conspiring to wage war against Inida. Headley and Rana are currently in the custody of FBI for plotting a terror attack in Denmark and conspiring a similar attack in India.
“The NIA is busy collecting the details of US nationals who used to come to the fitness centre. Records of the fitness centre have been scanned and several of its employees have been questioned,’’ sources said. They said only Headley’s picture was missing in the joining form at Moksh at Breach Candy.
The NIA is trying to take help from the US Consulate about the foreigners who stayed with Headley in Mumbai. Headley, who visited Mumbai at least seven times between 2006 and 2009, did never register himself with any Foreigner’s Regional Registration Office (FRRO) in the country.
Meanwhile, two more real estate agents and a small-time businessmen gave their statement to the NIA team in connection with their association with Headley. It is learnt that the accommodation records of three five-star hotels in Mumbai have been obtained by the NIA where Headley suppostedly stayed.
