The BrahMos is the world’s fastest medium-range supersonic cruise missile that can be fired from submarines, ships, aircraft or land, making the illegal disclosure of information, a serious matter. Aggarwal has been working in the city’s DRDO facility since four years now. The unit makes propellents, or fuel, for the BrahMos missile.

The operation was conducted jointly by the ATS Maharashtra and UP. The local had no clue about the operation and the ATS choose to keep it that way. The authorities are now investigating into the Aggarwal’s contacts, connections, and his method of operation. Aggarwal is accused of leaking sensitive information to Pakistan’s ISI as well as spy agencies of other nations.

Aggarwal is a graduate from NIT, Kurukshetra and a gold medallist. He was stationed at Nagpur’s Wardha road research facility of the DRDO. He had got married just two months ago. Two of his colleagues have also come under the scanner.
