In Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Mukul Goel said preliminary investigations showed Ali was passing information about Indian Army to ISI.
He got married in Pakistan and had two children there, the police officer said, adding “he used to go there on the pretext of meeting his family”.
Goel said during one of these visits seven to eight years ago he came in contact with some ISI officials.
“Since then he has been involved in this activity,” he said.
