Besides the Official Secrets Act, Kashif was also convicted for wrongful communication, unauthorised use of uniforms, falsification of reports, forgery, impersonation, cheating and charges under the Foreigners Act.
Kashif, a resident of Faisalabad, had been staying as Pawan Kumar in Sector 44 for two-and-a-half years before he was arrested on July 10, 2010. The crime branch of the UT Police had arrested him on intelligence inputs. The police had recovered documents marked “restricted” from him.
Anand was arrested by the police from Haiderpur in Delhi for supplying Kashif with identity proof, including a fake driving licence, of his younger brother Pawan Kumar.
Kashif claimed that he was a property dealer and belonged to Pitampura in Delhi. However, he broke down during interrogation.
The three co-accused who were acquitted were Gurpinder Singh, Jagdish Kumar and Kulwinder Singh. They were booked for conspiracy and other charges.
