A man has been arrested in Gujarat’s Bharuch district for allegedly spying for a Pakistani intelligence agency, police said. Pravin Mishra, a resident of Ankleshwar in Bharuch, is accused of collecting classified information about the Indian Armed Forces and defence research firms for Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

The Pakistani operative used an Indian WhatsApp number and the fake Facebook ID of Sonal Garg to target and trap Mishra.

"She honey-trapped one Pravin Mishra, who worked in Hyderabad in an organisation which in turn worked with DRDO," said CID ADGP Rajkumar Pandian.
