The Case Unfolds in 2018: By Military Intelligence & Maharashtra (ATS)

Nishant Agarwal was arrested by the authorities at his home in Nagpur in October 2018. During a search of his computer, the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) and military intelligence found many classified documents. After months of surveillance that revealed suspicious communications with foreign intelligence agents, they decided to arrest him.

Spying Charges 

The investigation found that Agarwal had been giving secret information about BrahMos missile technology to ISI agents. The prosecution showed evidence of bank transactions and encrypted messages linking him to the spying activities. Agarwal was charged under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Official Secrets Act, showing how serious his actions were.

Trial and Verdict

During the trial, the prosecution carefully explained how Agarwal accessed and shared secret information. Military officers and computer experts testified, explaining the security measures at BrahMos Aerospace and how Agarwal bypassed them. The evidence clearly showed that his actions to harm national security were deliberate and planned.

What is the Defense's Argument?

Agarwal's defence argued that the evidence against him was indirect and that he was trapped. They said the money transactions were unrelated to spying and his contacts with the alleged ISI agents were misunderstood. However, the defence could not disprove the strong evidence presented by the prosecution.

Final Court's Decision

The court found Agarwal guilty on all charges, showing how serious his offences were. The judge stressed that Agarwal betrayed the trust given to him to handle important defence technologies. His life sentence reflected the court's view on the seriousness of spying against the country.
