The lady, it seems, is a spy

This just in: An Indian diplomat posted in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad has been arrested for allegedly spying and transferring strategic information about India to arch foe, Pakistan, according to Indian media reports.

The diplomat, 53-year-old Madhuri Gupta, was summoned to New Delhi a few days ago on the pretext of holding discussions on the upcoming SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Coopertation) summit in Bhutan.  She was then arrested and produced before a Delhi court. 

Indian media reports say Gupta is a “spinster” – the word “single” apparently has not made it into many Indian news organizations’ lexicons. Apparently, she got a hold of sensitive information from the station chief of the Indian intelligence agency RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) in Islamabad, a certain Mr. R. K. Sharma.

As a second secretary in the information bureau, Gupta should not have had access to the most sensitive information at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.

Expect to hear more about the Gupta-Sharma links.

Expect to hear spy-thriller-like details in the next few days.

Expect an added degree of tensions when – and if - Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh meets his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani on the sidelines of the SAARC summit.

Leela-Great post about Mudhari. You mentioned somethings about her past and was wondering if you could expand on it a little more. I'm doing some research on women spys for school and would like to site your website as a source if you don't mind. You really do have a great site here and am definitely going to tell other people about it. spy equipment

Very good!
