India's National Investigation Agency in Chennai yesterday arrested a Sri Lankan national for allegedly spying at the behest of Pakistan.
Arun Selvarajan, was arrested by the NIA as part of its crackdown on the espionage ring that operates out of Sri Lanka.
Indian authorities recently uncovered an alleged plot by a Pakistan-based terror group to carry out suicide attacks on US and Israeli consulates in south India.
The conspiracy was reportedly planned overseas including in Sri Lanka, Malaysia and the Maldives.
Selvarajan has been accused of taking photos and videos of vital security installations in Chennai and passing them on to his handler in the Pakistani high commission in Colombo.
The NIA said the Sri Lankan national was part of a gang led by another Sri Lankan spy for Pakistan, Thameem Ansari, who was earlier arrested by the Indian authorities in 2012 for possessing dossiers on Indian defence installations.
The NIA said Selvarajan was carrying both Sri Lankan and Indian passports.
Responding to the allegations Pakistan recently said the allegations is an attempt to "create a wedge" between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
