    NEW DELHI: An airman in the Indian Air Force, who allegedly shared secret documents with intelligence operatives backed by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), has been arrested from Punjab by the crime branch of Delhi Police.

    "In a combined operation by Delhi Police Crime Branch, Military Intelligence and Air Force, a major breakthrough has been achieved in busting a espionage network supported by Pakistan-based intelligence agencies. A serving LAC (Lead Aircraft Man) of Air Force has been arrested from Bhatinda by a team led by ACP KPS Malhotra," joint commissioner, crime, Ravindra Yadav told Times of India.

    The accused has been identified as Ranjith KK. He had joined the service in year 2010 and was posted at Bhatinda Air Force Station.

    Ranjith, a native of Kerala, was arrested on Monday and brought to Delhi on transit remand, the senior official said.

    Ranjith allegedly shared information about locations of fighter jets and Air Force bases with operatives of an ISI-backed espionage ring through e-mails and text messages, said an official privy to the investigation.

    He added that Ranjith was roped in into the spy ring by an unidentified woman whom he had met over a social networking site.

    Ranjith's arrest comes shortly after the cracking of an ISI-backed espionage racket by the Crime Branch in connection with which five persons - including a serving and a former army personnel and a serving BSF personnel - were arrested.

    However, the police haven't yet been able to ascertain any specific link between Ranjith and the other racket, which were even found to have sources at the office of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi, the official added.
