Police in Pakistan’s Punjab province claimed to have arrested an “Indian spy”, identified as Raju Lakshman, in the town of Dera Ghazi Khan on Wednesday.

He has been handed over him to a premier intelligence agency for further investigation.

The police official concerned Liaquat Leghari told reporters that a team of the border military police had arrested 30-year-old Lakshman during patrolling.

“Raju Lakshman is an Indian national. The security agencies are interrogating him to know whether he crossed over here inadvertently or for spying purpose,” he said.

Banned entry
