Nawab Khan

14 March: Nawab Khan, 36, from the village of Gaanga in the state of Punjab, has been arrested by Indian authorities and accused of spying for Pakistan. Gaanga is a few miles south east of the Sikh city of Amritsar, about 20 miles from the India-Pakistan border.

Indian authorities say that Khan had been specifically tasked to spy on Indian military defences in the area. His information was passed through coded messages and also through video calls to Pakistan. They claim that he began his activities after travelling to Pakistan and receiving 22 days of training from the Pakistani Intelligence Service, known as Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

Tensions are high between the two nations following the Pulwama terrorist attack which India says was supported by Pakistan.
