New Delhi, April, 27 : In a sensational revelation, an Indian woman diplomat posted in Islamabad has been arrested here on charges of spying for Pakistan.

Simultaneously, the station head of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) in Islamabad R K Sharma has also come under the scanner, official sources said Tuesday.

A promotee officer (belonged to the lower cadre known as IFS-B) of Ministry of External Affairs, 53-year-old Madhuri Gupta, was arrested from her East Delhi home four days back, after she was summoned to Delhi on the pretext of discussions on the current SAARC summit meeting held in Thimpu, Bhutan.

The officer, a Second Secretary working in the Indian Mission in Islamabad for nearly three years, is alleged to have been passing on extremely sensitive information to her contacts in ISI till her movements came under surveillance of Intelligence Bureau sleuths.

Home Secretary G K Pillai said Gupta had been passing information to Pakistani agencies. "She has been arrested," he said.

The sources said Gupta, a spinster, is alleged to have been taking information from the RAW station head in Islamabad, which was passed to the Pakistani spy agencies.

The sources said that the role of Sharma had also come under scanner for allegedly abusing his position and passing information to Gupta. However, it was not clear whether he knew the woman officer's real designs, the sources said.

Gupta, who was arrested upon her arrival four days ago, was produced again before a court yesterday which has remanded her to further police custody of another five days..

She has been charged under Official Secrets Act.

Reports claim that she is being put through intensive interrogation by a joint team of the Research & Analysis Wing (RAW) and Intelligence Bureau (IB)

Reacting to the shocking expose, former foreign secretary Kanwal Sibal told a news channel: “It is very very shocking. It is the first time such an incidence has taken place.”

This " B..... " Madhuri Gupta should be given Death Penalty by " Firing Squad ". Indian Embassies & Consulates are having Service & Attitude problems was well known till today, but being Traitor of Country is really shocking. Many Indian Ambassadors acts like NAWABS and has their own laws to operate Embassies & Consulates.
