IAF-Officer-Arun-Marwaha-arrested

According to reports, Marwah was honey-trapped into sharing the information with the ISI by operatives masquerading as models on Facebook.

The Delhi Police arrested Group Captain Arun Marwaha on Thursday, February 8, for leaking secret details and documents of the Indian Air Force to Pakistani spy agency ISI.

Marwaha has been booked under sections 3 and 5 of the Official Secrets Act, as per the FIR filed by the Delhi Police. The officer then began to regularly share classified information with them on Whatsapp. The information that he shared was reportedly on new agencies in the field of cyber warfare, space and special operations. They also exchanged intimate messages. Marwaha was sent to Delhi after he was interrogated for ten days by the Indian Air force. The 51-year-old officer allegedly used his smartphone to take pictures of classified documents at the IAF headquarters and shared it on WhatsApp. After gaining his trust, the agent asked the officer for classified documents, the source further said.
