The ISI agents had made fake profiles as women on Facebook and befriended the officer there.

He was detained by the IAF for investigation on January 31 after his activities were found suspicious.

The detention of the Lt Colonel-rank official comes barely a week after IAF officer Arup Marwaha was arrested for sharing secret info with Pak-based handlers after being enticed on social media.
