In a major development in Pakistan espionage racket case, the Delhi Police on Saturday detained PA of Samajwadi Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Munawwar Saleem. The man has been identified as Farhat, officials said.

Farhat was detained last night, said a senior Crime Branch officer, adding his interrogation is underway.

Delhi Police is also trying to nab other members of the racket who, it believes, were in close contact with Pakistan.

Earlier on Friday evening, Delhi Police arrested the third Pakistani spy Shoaib from Jodhpur in Rajasthan.

Shoaib is a Jodhpur-based passport and visa agent who is alleged to be a part of the espionage ring run by a Pakistani High Commission official.

The Delhi Police on Thursday nabbed Pakistan High Commission official Mehmood Akhtar along with two Indians identified as Maulana Ramzan and Subhash Jangir from the Delhi Zoo while the visa agent Shoaib had managed to escape.

Soon after the interrogation, Akhtar was asked to leave the country within 48 hours. Subhash and Maulana were arrested on charges of sharing of sensitive information, defence documents and deployment details of the BSF along the India-Pakistan border, with the ISI. 

The two were sent to 12-day police custody.
