The owner of a private security agency was arrested in Bhopal late Friday with at least two wireless sets tuned to prohibited frequencies used by the police and military.
Wakhar Khan, 40, managed to destroy 13 other handsets whose frequencies also matched the prohibited spectrum before the police reached his office in Bhopal Plaza.
The police confiscated two sets that were intact from the office of Defend Security Services, the company that provided security in some big events. Khan has reportedly earlier travelled to Pakistan.

Khan has a licence but only few of the sets owned by the company used non-prohibited frequency.
He was produced before a local court late on Saturday and remanded in police custody for 10 days.
Additional SP (North) Manu Vyas told The Sunday Express that the police will subject Khan to intense interrogation to find if and how he misused the access to the prohibited spectrum. He said the police have got in touch with Military Intelligence unit. He denied reports that Khan had collected details of the movement of BJP national chief Amit Shah, who is due to visit Bhopal on Sunday.
A special team of experts from police and MI has been formed to probe the matter.
