Srinagar: A Pakistani national told a help desk at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi Airport on Friday that he is an ISI agent and want to stay give up spying by staying in India, a media report said.
The claim sent the security at Terminal 3 into a tizzy, with intelligence agencies being immediately alerted, the report added.

Security agencies and Intelligence Bureau officials were informed and they are interrogating him,” the report quoted an airport source as saying.
Sources, according to the report, said that there is a possibility that he is lying, but officials are checking his passport details to know where he travelled in the past few months.

Officials said he was taken to an undisclosed destination where he was being questioned, the report added.
