A Delhi court has sentenced an Indian army official to seven years in jail for doubling as a Pakistan intelligence agent and supplying sensitive defence-related information to the neighbouring country, Indian media reported on Sunday.

District and Additional Sessions judge of Delhi High Court O.P. Gupta jailed Anil Kumar Dubey, 39, convicting him under Section 3 of the Official Secrets Indian Act for passing on secret information to Pakistan about the movement and deployment of army troops in India.

According to the prosecution, the special cell of Delhi police had arrested Dubey from his home at Mahipalpur on October 20, 2006 on a tip-off that an alleged Pakistan high commission employee would be visiting him to procure some sensitive information.

Police had caught Dubey while he was handing over a bag, containing some CDs and other documents, including some notifications pertaining to army s anti-insurgency operations, to the alleged Pakistan High Commission employee, Mohd Farooq.

Raids at Dubey s house led to recovery of three cheque books, two of which belonged to Farooq and one to Shamshad Hussain, another alleged Pakistan Embassy official.
