Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman discreetly passed a briefcase to Adnan Sami Khan at a quiet New Delhi neighbourhood park on Thursday.
“Delta Echo Foxtrot,” said Sami, in response to the briefcase, to which Varthaman replied, “Affirmative. Engage Gamma.”
Both the individuals wore Rayban sunglasses and suits during the exchange. Sami was also seen wearing a trench coat which turned out to be a required protocol as Varthaman started apologizing for not wearing one and wanted it to be lent to him, a request that Sami declined.
“I made sure no one, not a single soul saw me making this exchange,” said Varthaman, when contacted by The Dependent. “What was in that briefcase? Sorry, I am not supposed to tell.”
