Official sources in Central Command Headquarters, while talking to "The Hitavada", confirmed that a team of Military Intelligence (MI) detained a Lieutenant Colonel rank officer now posted in 506 Army Base Workshop.

Jabalpur: The army has launched a preliminary inquiry against a Lieutenant Colonel of the Army's Central Command in Jabalpur for suspected leak of classified information, an official said today.

The senior official said that "reports of detention of officer, honey trapping and money exchange at this stage are pure speculation and neither accurate nor substantiated".

The team from Army headquarters conducted scrutiny of documents at residence and office throughout the night and seized several important documents, laptop and mobile handset.

Earlier, there were speculations that the officer was being investigated for a possible case of honey trap.

Spear phishing is a targeted e-mail-spoofing attack, different from phishing for financial gain, and is exclusively aimed at unauthorized access to sensitive information.

"The officer is being questioned and is under grilling at present", the PRO had said.

Sources said that he may be taken to Lucknow for further interrogation. Therefore he will continue to perform his duty in Army unit.

The incident came days after Group Captain Arun Marwah, posted at the IAF headquarters, was interrogated by the IAF's counter-intelligence wing on charges of espionage and subsequently handed over to the Delhi Police. However, it is still not clear whether the case pertains to graft or to supply of confidential information to Pakistan's spying agency.
