New Delhi : Madhuri Gupta, a junior Indian diplomat arrested on charges of spying for Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), was Saturday sent by a court here to 14 days judicial custody.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja asked the Special Cell of Delhi Police to present Gupta, 53, in the court on May 15.
“We wanted to extend her remand since she is not giving us important information and leads,” said a police source.
Gupta, a second secretary at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, was arrested here April 27 on charges of passing on information to the Pakistan intelligence agency.
Gupta, who belongs to Delhi, was earlier in police custody for five days.
According to officials, she came under suspicion months ago and was called to Delhi on the pretext of helping to prepare for the SAARC summit that ended in Bhutan this week.
