ISI operates from within IAF‏

A Delhi court has sentenced a former Indian Air Force employee to three-and-half-year prison term for passing on defence information to Pakistani intelligence officials.

Additional Sessions Judge Shalinder Kaur also imposed a fine of Rs 500 on Sanjit Kumar Paul (62), holding him guilty under various provisions of the Official Secrets Act and the Indian Penal Code.

During the arguments on sentence, Paul sought a lenient view of the court stating that he had already suffered incarceration for four years.

The prosecution, on the other, submitted that the convict was found in possession of a number of documents besides the telephone directory having number of defence personnel.

Paul and Bijendra Singh Panwar were arrested by the Delhi Police on April 22, 2009.

They were accused of passing secret information, prejudicial to the safety and security of the country, to Pakistan intelligence officials through Nepal.

Paul was also found in possession of one fake identity card.

The prosecution, however, could not prove its charge that Paul and Panwar were also found to be in possession different wireless messages of Indian Navy and Air Force.

The prosecution examined 29 witnesses to prove its case against Paul.

The court had acquitted Panwar of all the charges for want of sufficient proof. pkkh
