DRDO espionage: ‘Mysterious’ woman’s IP address traced to Pakistan

Balasore: Odisha Crime Branch, which is probing the DRDO espionage case, today made a startling revelation as it claimed that the IP address of the ‘mysterious’ woman has been traced to Pakistan.

Briefing mediapersons, Crime Branch ADG Sanjeeb Panda today said the woman operative used four Facebook accounts to contact the five accused, arrested in this connection earlier. The social media accounts were operated from Pakistan: three from Islamabad and one from Rawalpindi.

“The woman used proxy IPs of the US, India and German to keep the location secret. Few of the accounts are currently active as she is still chatting with some people,” the senior cop added.

However, the Crime Branch ADG did not divulge further details about the investigation.

Earlier, the investigating agency had informed that the woman used to talk with the accused by changing her voice through a mobile application. She even had asked the accused to change their SIM cards.

She had also managed to hack the mobile phone of one of the arrested persons and been keeping an eye on his movement for around eight months,” CB sources had said earlier.
