Police sources said maps and some other documents have been seized from Nandu Maharaj, who was also accused of bringing a sizeable quantity of RDX into India. Officials of the intelligence agencies, however, refused to officially confirm any detail.
“We arrested Nandu on Thursday after we got inputs from intelligence agencies. He is from Pakistan and was in Jaisalmer for the last about 12-13 days,” a police official told IANS on phone.
He said he is presently being interrogated in Jaisalmer, which is about 600 km from here.
“We will bring him to Jaipur by late Friday evening for further interrogation,” an official of the Rajasthan Police intelligence wing said.
Nandu is said to have entered India aboard the Thar Express train, which runs between Karachi, in Sindh province of Pakistan, and Jodhpur, in Rajasthan state of India.
Nandu holds a valid Pakistani passport and visa for India, the official said.
