Two alleged Pakistani ‘spies’ remanded


Two Pakistani nationals, including a 38-year-old woman, arrested by police on the charge of entering India without any authorisation with an intention to settle here as ISI modules, were remanded by a Delhi court in police custody for 14 days. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav remanded 40-year-old Imran and his woman accomplice, Soofia Kanwal, both from Karachi, in police custody in an in-camera proceeding.
The court handed over the duo to police on the prosecution’s plea that their custodial interrogation was required to unravel their networks and plans here, said a police official, privy to the in-camera court proceedings. The crime branch of the city police arrested the duo from New Delhi railway station on a tip off that two Pakistani nationals, who had entered India on December 5 through Sanouli border in Gorakhpur area in Uttar Pradesh would be coming to the national capital by the Gorakhdham Express.
