New Delhi/IBNS: A temporary staffer of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has been arrested for allegedly sharing details of G-20 meetings and other confidential information with an unidentified person in Pakistan.

The Ghaziabad Police arrested the man, Naveen Pal, and charged him with espionage based on information from the Intelligence Bureau (IB).

Pal allegedly shared confidential information through WhatsApp with a woman he met on social media, said reports

The virtual phone number associated with the woman's WhatsApp account appeared to be from Bareilly in UP, officials said.

However, the IP address was traced to Karachi in Pakistan, they added.

The accused allegedly shared multiple pieces of intelligence about India, MEA documents, and details of G-20 meetings with a person in Karachi through WhatsApp, officials said.
