A Pakistani spy from the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Nishant Agrawal, was arrested on Monday for allegedly leaking secrets to Pakistan and USA. Agrawal, in what could be termed as a massive security breach, has been accused of leaking sensitive information about BrahMos missile from the Nagpur (Maharashtra) unit.

Agrawal, who has been working with Brahmos Aerospace Centre for four years, has been booked under the Official Secrets Act. The Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) nabbed the spy in a joint operation. 

According to the police, the accused had got an access to sensitive information on India’s missile systems. As per certain reports, Nagpur Police had no clue about Agrawals presence in the BrahMos unit. Also, Nagpur Police claim that they didn’t get any information about the investigation from the ATS team as well.

What makes the arrest of Agrawal even more critical is the fact that BrahMos is the fastest supersonic cruise missile in the world. The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) facility in Nagpur makes propellants or fuel for the BrahMos missile. The BrahMos is a medium-range supersonic missile that can be fired from submarines, ships, aircraft or land.

The MLC member was present in the house during the proceedings of the legislative council. While the house was in session, Rathod was watching adult content on his smartphone.
However, he threw these charges under the bus and said, I was looking for materials for a question I wanted to ask the government in question hour.
?When I was looking for question material, I deleted too many messages as my phone storage was full. What the media has shown or seen, I don’t know. I would never do such things or see such things, he added.
This was not the first time in Karnataka that such an incident had happened. Back in 2012, three Bharatiya Janata Party ministers were caught on camera allegedly watching adult content in the State Assembly.
