The suspect allegedly used to pass “confidential and sensitive” information related to national security to a person based in Pakistan, the report said.

The source said the suspect driver was honey trapped by an ISI person who pretended to be a woman when he spoke with him.

The arrest took place after security agencies alerted the police that the driver was passing on the information to someone in Pakistan. The suspect is currently being questioned.
