A man has been arrested for allegedly working for a Pakistani intelligence agency and was found in possession of secret documents relating to Indian army which were to be supplied to an 'agent' of Pakistan high commission in New Delhi.

Zubair Khan, a resident of Kakrala village in Uttar Pradesh, was on Wednesday remanded in two-day police custody after he was produced in the court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Manish Yaduvanshi by the crime branch of Delhi

Police which had arrested him on Tuesday.

The police told the court that on July 17, on receipt of secret information, Zubair was apprehended near parking gate of Kalindi Kunj Park in New Delhi.

When he was searched, confidential documents and photographs pertaining to the Indian army were recovered. During his interrogation, Zubair disclosed that he was working for a Pakistan intelligence agency and was in contact with some officials of Pakistan high commission in New Delhi, and that the recovered documents were to be handed over to that agent of the commission, police told the court.

The police said the Zubair has to be interrogated at length to unearth the entire conspiracy and also to identify the persons who had supplied him the secret documents. "As per the disclosure statement of the accused, custodial interrogation of the accused is required not only to apprehend the co-conspirators but also to interrogate him in detail to

unearth the whole conspiracy pursuant to which the accused was stated to have been found in possession of documents which are secret documents pertaining to the Indian army," the ACMM said.

The court then granted police his custody for two days as against the requested five days.
