NIA arrests IPS officer for ‘leaking’ secret documents to LeT
The NIA had previously arrested six people in the case
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday arrested its former Superintendent of Police (SP) and IPS officer Arvind Digvijay Negi for allegedly leaking secret documents to a ground worker from the banned terrorist group Lashkar-e -Taiba, said its official spokesperson.
The spokesperson said Negi, a police officer who was promoted to the IPS group in 2011, was arrested in connection with a case filed by the NIA on November 6 last year.
The case concerns the spread of the Laskhar-e-Taiba (LeT) Groundworkers’ Network (OGW) banned for providing support for the planning and execution of terrorist activities in India.
The NIA had previously arrested six people in the case.
“During the investigation, the role of AD Negi, IPS, SP stationed in Shimla (since repatriated from NIA) was verified and his houses were searched. It was also found that official secret documents of the NIA had been disclosed by AD Negi to another defendant who is an OGW of LeT in the case,” the spokesperson said.
