Meerut: Meerut: An Indian Army soldier, part of Signal Regiment, was arrested from Meerut cantonment of Uttar Pradesh in connection with the BrahMos spying case.

Nishant Pradeep Agrawal had reportedly been interacting with two Facebook accounts, the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) of the Uttar Pradesh police said.
According to police, the Islamabad-based Facebook accounts Nishant Pradeep Agrawal was in touch with are believed to be run by Pakistan's intelligence operatives.
