Indian diplomat convicted for passing on secrets to ISI

Indian court convicted former diplomat on the charges of passing state secrets to Pakistan’s premier intelligence service and has been handed over a three year jail term after she was arraigned.

Madhuri Gupta, 61, was found guilty by the court in New Delhi of “spying and wrongful communication “during her posting at Indian embassy in Islamabad. Gupta was posted as a second secretary at the embassy and is charged of allegedly “passing sensitive information to Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

However, ex diplomat avoided more serious sentence amid the information she passed to the alleged handlers in Pakistan during 2009 and 2010 was not a military Intel.

Additional session judge gave Gupta maximum sentence -observed that in one of the e-mails, she had promised to collect information regarding hydroelectric power projects in Jammu & Kashmir which could have had a serious repercussion on the country's security. ”Therefore .she does not deserve any leniency in punishment”.

The court determined that the actions of the former diplomat has been inimical to India’s reputation and compromised its security. The diplomat has been held guilty under multiple provisions of Official secrets act.

The former diplomat has denied the charges and claims to have falsely implicated by the officials of embassy and foreign ministry amid the strained relations with the officials. The verdict comes at a time when high level Pakistani delegation has reached Washington for three-day talks on Kishanganga hydro power project dispute.
