Three Indian officials of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad were timely recalled after they revealed that Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has set up a honeytrap to extract critical and sensitive information from them.
According to media reports, an investigation has been started and no classified document has been passed on to ISI as their bid was foiled well in time. The reports further claimed, a honeytrap was laid for the officials where several attempts were made to allure them by women.
Due to security measures, the identity of the Indian officials could not revealed.
Sources familier with the matter told The Times of India that the attempt was to seduce and later film the officials in compromising position. However, the officials realised early and approached senior Indian authorities seeking help to get them out of the situation.
They were asked to return to Delhi for further investigation. According to the initial examination, none of the three Indian officials was found guilty and was co-operating in investigation.
These Indian officials worked with the language sections and were responsible for the translation of official documents.
