The case was registered in Gomti Nagar in February after it was revealed that the defendants were sharing confidential information about the Indian army with the ISI in Pakistan. Subsequently, the NIA took over the case.
Investigations revealed that ISI had hatched a conspiracy to obtain restricted and confidential information from Indian army officers by luring them through a pseudonymous entity called ‘Neha Sharma’ operated by them.
Saurabh Sharma, who was serving in the Indian Army, had shared strategic and sensitive information such as troop deployment/movement, location, strength, and party composition of the Indian Army.
In return for providing such sensitive information, he had received funding from multiple sources, including Pakistani sources and also from Anas Yakub Giteli, a co-defendant.
The investigation also found that the defendant Saurabh Sharma had also received funds from Imran Giteli, Anas Yakub Giteli’s older brother.
