The Mumbai Police in a joint operation with Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), arrested suspected Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agent Altaf Ali late on Wednesday night here.
The arrest came after the UP ATS yesterday arrested another suspected ISI agent, Aftab Ali, son of Wajid Ali, from Faizabad. Police arrested Altaf from a building called Yusuf Majil and also recovered Rs. 70 lakh from his house.
Altaf, who is suspected to have carried out numerous operations under command of the ISI, has been handed to the UP ATS team for interrogation.
Atlaf allegedly was indulging in illegal activities and transferred money into the account of Aftab in Faizabad on the instructions of the ISI.
Earlier on Wednesday, Aftab was arrested from Faizabad, who was believed to be receiving training from the ISI in Pakistan and was allegedly in touch with the Pakistan High Commission officials.
The ATS was in possession of strong evidence against him like phone chats and some pictures of the cantonment area.
It was a joint operation conducted by the UP ATS, the Military Intelligence and the UP Intelligence. It is believed that more arrests can be possible in relation with this.
