Three Aides Of Suspected Isi Spy Detained | Surat


Surat: Three suspects who were in contact with accused Dilip Salunke, the suspected ISI spy, were detained by the special operation group (SOG) of the city police on Friday.
The accused have been nabbed from different areas of the city after cops found their involvement in financial transactions with Salunke, a tailor, turned into a money transfer agent after his tailoring and garment business shut during the Covid-19 pandemic.
While the police are verifying Salunke’s role in the transactions of crores of rupees, cops are collecting details of bank accounts linked with Salunke and will reveal the details on the trio after gathering evidence.
“Earlier, it was found that Salunke was running a money transfer service. Now, the bank transactions suggest that he is linked to some hawala network as well,” a police officer said, adding that cops are also investigating how Salunke received and transferred money.
Investigation into Salunke’s background revealed that he was involved in bootlegging and some other illegal activities as well.
Following his arrest on Tuesday from the Dindoli area, Salunke was produced in a local court by police on Wednesday and he was remanded to police custody till December 21. Police requested 14 days custody but the court approved seven days.
Salunke came in contact of one ‘Pooja Sharma’, an ISI handler in disguise, on Facebook around six months ago and started chatting. They shared WhatsApp numbers and Sharma asked Salunke to provide information about the Indian armed forces. The handler sought information related to various establishments of armed forces and their movements. Salunke shared a few photos and details through WhatsApp and received Rs 75,856 payment through cryptocurrency.
Police also found that Salunke was in contact of two other ISI handlers, Hamid and Kashif.
