Military court sentences ‘Indian spy’ to three years imprisonment


A military court on Monday sentenced an alleged Indian spy to three years imprisonment after he pleaded guilty, a private news channel reported.

Nihal Hamid Ansari was arrested by law enforcement agencies during a raid in Kohat. Sources said the military court handed down the punishment after Ansari admitted that he was spying in Pakistan.

Pakistani security services had also recovered maps of sensitive installations from his possession at the time of his arrest, the sources further said.
