Nagpur court rejects scientist bail arrested in Bramhos Aerospace surveillance case

Nagpur: The District Sessions Court has rejected the bail of Nagpur scientist Nishant Agrawal, who was arrested in connection with the Bramhos Aerospace surveillance case and on alleged charges of spying for Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI and other countries.

Nishant Agrawal, a scientist working with the missile research centre of BrahMos Aerospace Pvt Ltd (BAPL) in Nagpur, has sent shock waves across the country’s security establishment.

Nishant was arrested by the Uttar Pradesh ATS from Nagpur on Oct 8 in the joint operation with ATT. He was arrested for the violation of the Official Secrets Act, for allegedly spying for Pakistan’s ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) and also passing on information to unknown persons in the US.

Nishant has filed for bail in the ongoing case at the District Sessions Court of Nagpur. However, the Uttar Pradesh ATS opposed his bail appeal.

The next hearing of the case is scheduled on March 28.
