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 an Over Ground Worker (OWG) of the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba group.
A NIA Spokesperson said that Negi was arrested in connection with a case registered by the NIA on November 6 last year.
The case pertains to the spread of network of Over Ground Workers (OGWs) of the banned Laskhar-e-Taiba (LeT) for providing support in planning and execution of ‘terrorist’ activities in India.
The NIA had earlier arrested six people in the case.
“During investigation, the role of A D Negi, IPS, SP posted at Shimla (since repatriated from NIA) was verified and his houses were searched.”
“It was also found that official secret documents of the NIA were leaked by A D Negi to another accused person who is an OGW of LeT in the case,” the spokesperson said. (PTI)
