New Delhi: Indian Army movement plans were leaked to Pakistani spy agency ISI in February last year.
According to information accessed by India TV, plan of operational talks between the then Defence Minister AK Antony and former Army Chief General Bikram Singh on February 15, 2014 were leaked.
Sources said that Antony and Singh were talking about deployment of forces bordering Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir and Rajasthan in room number 104 of the Ministry of Defence. Room number 104 in the Ministry belongs to the Defence Minister.
Sources said that the ISI was aware of the details of 11 am talks between Antony and Singh. The meeting between the two lasted for an hour.
After the meeting, Army Chief at around 12 noon briefed the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMO) Chief Lieutenant General Vinod Bhatia about the redeployment plan. Within a few hours, the Pakistan Army too began redeploying its troops.
The military intelligence then alerted that Pakistan was also redeploying its troops to counter India's plan.
Singh then informed Antony of a possible leak, who then briefed the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
The Prime Minister then visited the DGMO war room and chaired a meet of Army top brass. The Army successfully managed to identify the mole. He was identified as a senior Army officer. He was subsequently court-martialed for leaking crucial information to ISI.
Soon after this incident, the government decided to install CCTVs across the Ministry in the South Block.
