‘Chinese spy’ arrested in Delhi
[Friday, September 21, 2018 19:29]
By Tenzin Dharpo

DHARAMSHALA, Sep. 21: A suspected Chinese spy has reportedly been arrested by an Indian intelligence agency from the Majnu-ka-tilla area in the national capital Delhi on September 13.

The suspect who is identified as Charlie Peng, 39, is said to be running an espionage ring in the country. Peng who owns a currency exchange firm in Gurgaon, authorities say, is a front for hawala activities.

A special cell in the Delhi Police has produced Peng in front of the court of chief metropolitan magistrate Deepak Sehrawat on Thursday and managed to extend his remand for further interrogation in connection with what the police say is “anti-national” activities as well as alleged ties with People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

Authorities have recovered a passport issued from Manipur and an Adhaar identity card with address of residential society in Delhi’s Dwarka area, from the suspect. The police have already launched investigations on those who helped him obtain the documents and filed FIR on multiple sections.

Along with the documents, a Toyota SUV, 3.5 lakh INR, 2000 USD and 22,000 Thai Baht has also been recovered from the Chinese man.

Police has said that Peng, native of Nanjing area in China may be a highly trained operative. The Chinese national who has married an Indian girl is believed to have crossed into Indian five years ago.

In 2013, a Tibetan-origin man and suspected Chinese espionage operative Pema Tsering was arrested in McLeod Ganj, Dharamshala where the exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama resides. Police at the time said that during interrogation, Tsering admitted to being an ex-member of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) of China and also having served in the People's Armed Police Force (PAPF).
