Indian intelligence agencies have sounded an alarm over increasing attempts by Pakistan and Chinese agencies to honeytrap Indian officers using attractive women.
According to information available exclusively with India Today, intelligence agencies have issued a warning to officers to be alert of such attempts.
“An intelligence warning has been issued to the forces asking them to spread awareness among their men again such attempts by the enemy operatives,” a highly placed source told India Today.
Good looking women of Pakistani, Chinese origin speaking fluent Urdu, English have been deployed to lay trap for Indian officers.
PHONES DETAILS BEING TRACKED
Reports also said that internet habits of Indian officers are also being tracked by foreign intelligence agencies. Officers using smartphones of Chinese origin are particularly under their radar.
Those visiting porn sites or looking to make friendship with women using social media are being monitored closely.
THE MODUS OPERANDI
After the target is carefully selected, Urdu speaking Pakistani woman or English speaking Chinese female make first contact with their target through WhatsApp or Facebook.
The woman then lure the officer using Urdu shayri or flowery Hindi. After a few days of cajoling over the phone, the woman sets up a meeting at a coffee shop, restaurant or shopping mall with the target.
In the very first meeting, the woman intices the officer with offering him sexual favour. The act is secretly video taped. The covert courtship continues for a few days with the woman claiming to be a rich, lonely and unsatisfied housewife.
The woman then uses the video tape of her intimate interaction to blackmail the officer and garner critical information from him about the armed forces.
