    Jodhpur: Barely two days after the conclusion of the Indian Air Force's air exercise 'Iron Fist' in Pokhran, a suspected spy has been caught giving information of the war games to an Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) operative in Pakistan. Sumer Khan (34), a computer expert, was taken into custody by army intelligence from his house in Pokhran on Sunday and was being grilled by security agencies, SP Jaisalmer Pankaj Kumar Chaudhary said on Monday.
    Intelligence sources said Sumer was sharing information of the IAF's exercise with his maternal uncle in Rahim Yar Khan in Pakistan for the past few days. His uncle has been working for ISI for the last few years, they said.
    Sumer is currently under the custody of the Joint Interrogation Cell in Jaipur where the security agencies are questioning him. The sources said he was caught after his calls to Pakistan were intercepted by the army intelligence and IB.

    They claimed that Sumer had been working for his uncle for the past two years and had been sharing vital information related to all the exercises, which have taken place in the region in the past two years besides the various defence installations in the region. Following interception of his calls to Pakistan, he was caught from his home in Pokhran.
    A 10th class passout, Sumer is an expert in computers and would talk to his uncle over phone in code words. He would frequently travel to Pakistan and is believed to have passed on maps and other documents pertaining to defence structure in the western sector.

    Does this not prove that Gen V K Singh was correct by creating a technical survillence org within army for this very purpose?

    It's not that easy .. Technical data that easilybe figured out are forced to be kept secret also code words used by the iaf and if possible fire control radar emissions if possible.. Data link frequency etc ...

    I AGREE WITH Mr B VIRAJITH SIR AND PLZ TELL ME THAT WHY WOULD A FORCE USE IT'S CLASSIFIED CODE OF CONDUCT AND OTHER HIGHLY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION IN A SHOWCASE LIKE IRONFIST WHERE FOREIGN DELEGATES TOO ARE PRESENT AND THE WHOLE NATION IS WATCHING THIS AND REGARDING THE FREQUENCY THEN SIR THEIR IS A BAND OF FREQUENCY ALLOCATED SPECIALLY FOR MILITARY PURPOSE AND ONE CAN USE ANY FREQ WITHIN THAT BAND AND IF YOU KNOW HOW A RADIO WORKS THEN YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO THINK IN THIS MANNER.

    Surely the iaf are not idiots .. But still critical data could slip through .. And if you think you know radios you should know that non fire control radars are frequency hopping across the entire band mixed with tdm techniques.. Similarly data interception techniques have also improved.. So the chances of wire sharking are very high...

    And why the so called spy has been arrested then sir he is supposed to leak the classified information about the western air command and some maps which are not supposed to access by any civilian in india.

    i agree also impressed about your knowledge of radio communication but what i am trying to tell you sir is there is a bit of difference between military and civil transmission through radio and that is in any kind of multiplexing the no of users at the end are fixed and on a certain logic signal all the interconnected systems get signal simultaniously and no one can hopp around for a leakage signal because practically their is not any.
