A high ranking Indian Air Force Group’s captain, Arun Marwaha got arrested this Wednesday by the Delhi Police for allegedly sharing secret info to two girls online.
He has been charged for leaking information to two girls over online channels including Facebook and WhatsApp.
Reports suggest that the captain’s friends actually had fake accounts and were only acting as girls. As usual, Indian media is claiming that these girls were “Pakistani ISI agents.”

These so-called “agents” seduced the army captain to share Indian secrets with them. The unprincipled captain captured photos of confidential documents belonging to the Indian Air Force headquarters and shared them with the women over WhatsApp. An officer said,
The documents which Marwaha shared mostly dealt with training and combat related air exercises. We also found he shared documents of Gagan Shakti, an exercise.
