Kohat: Indian man imprisoned for three years on spying charges

PESHAWAR: An Indian man has been sentenced for three years in Kohat for spying.

Hamid Nehal Ansari got the imprisonment by a court martial. He was convicted two days ago in Kohat and was shifted to Peshawar Central Prison.

According to reports, the convict had confessed to illegally sneaking into Pakistan from Afgh­a­nistan for espionage. It is reported that Ansari was operating seven Facebook accounts as well as around 30 email addresses. He also had possession of sensitive documents.

The defence ministry had informed the Peshawar High Court that Ansari was in the custody of Pakistan Army and was being tried by court martial. A two-member bench had on Jan 13 disposed of a petition filed by Ms Fauzia Ansari, the convict’s mother, against his alleged illegal detention.

Mr Ansari, a 31-year-old MBA degree holder, was a teacher at the Mumbai Management College.

The convict was taken into custody by police and Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials in Kohat in Nov 2012. Ever since, his whereabouts were unknown.
