Two mobile phones have been recovered from the possession of the accused. The accused used to delete entire information before leaving the office, however the intelligence team has been successful in recovering a lot of deleted data and chats by conducting technical tests of mobile phones.
Information about the arrest of the accused was sent to the superintendent of his department, Jaipur Division. Intensive interrogation is being done in collaboration with the CID Intelligence and Military Intelligence and his bank account details will be checked on Monday to know if any money was paid in lieu of information.
After checking all suspicious mobile numbers, efforts are being made to find out if this Pakistani female agent was in touch with any other person and what kind of information was shared with them. Information will be sought to find out as to how much information sent affects the national security system, said the officials.
