ATS sources said Razia was a honey trap for Alana. Senior ATS officials said they have seized Pakistani I cards which were specially made by the ISI for Alana who is supposed to have visited Pakistan four times. The money was directly given to Razia by the ISI which was about Rs 5,000 to 10,000 per information.
ATS sources said that the flow of information of troop movement in border areas of Kutch from the two agents had increased substantially after the URI attack and surgical strikes in POK by Indian Army.
“ATS was keeping a close watch on the movement of two residents of Khavda village of Kutch for last one year on the suspicion that they are working as spies of Pakistan’s ISI. Both of them were held by ATS today,” news agency PTI quoted a police official as saying on the condition of anonymity last night.
“We have learnt that ATS has recovered one Pakistani SIM card along with a mobile phone during the search of their house,” he added.
