Police have arrested a BSF jawan for allegedly sharing secret information such as photographs of fencing and roads with a Pakistani agent. 

The accused, identified as Sheikh Riazuddin, was under the scanner of the Border Security Force (BSF) intelligence wing for his suspicious activities for the last few months.

After his arrest, police recovered two mobile phones and seven SIM cards from the accused. 

It was alleged that the accused shared the information from his mobile phone. 

He is a resident of Renpura village in Maharashtra's Latur district and was posted with the BSF's 29th Battalion in the Ferozepur Sector in Punjab.

Riazuddin allegedly shared photographs of fencing and border roads, contact numbers of senior BSF officials and some other secret information with Mirja Faisal, an agent of Pakistani spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), they said. 

The accused shared the information from his mobile-phone, police said.

A case under relevant sections of the Official Secrets Act and National Security Act was registered against him at the Mamdot police station following a complaint by the deputy commandant of the 29th Battalion, they said.

Ranjit Singh, the investigation officer, on Sunday said the jawan will be produced in a court for police remand.
