While being interrogated, Paliwal claimed women tempted him on behalf of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). They often had erotic conversations with him and shared nude photos to persuade him to share information regarding the Army’s movement in border areas and the Pokhran firing range. Paliwal said he became greedy and started sending more sensitive information about the Indian Army to the agency for more photos and long conversations.
Intelligence officials said that Paliwal had been in touch with ISI for a long time via social media accounts and was honey-trapped for critical information.
Paliwal used a fake account on social media to engage the women in provocative virtual sex. Investigators learned that he used the same phony account to commit treason by sending confidential information across the border.
