The Uttar Pradesh ATS in a joint operation with Maharashtra ATS on Wednesday claimed to have smashed an espionage racket in the state by arresting Altaf Qureshi.
Altaf, who runs a money laundering racket had deposited money in the bank account of a suspected ISI agent Aftab Ali. Police have also seized 70 lac rupees from his possession.
This comes days after intelligence inputs had warned of a possible terror attack in the state by ISI-trained terrorists.
Police is interrogating Altaf seeking more information related to IS and its agents active in India.
