According to the German media, “Espionage charges against the suspect, identified as Balvir S, were filed at a state court in Frankfurt.
Balvir is accused of allowing passing the information on Sikhs, the “Kashmir movement” and their relatives to an employee of India’s Research & Analysis Wing in or before January 2015.”
According to prosecutors, the defendant was in regular telephone and personal contact with the Germany-based intelligence officer and passed on information “in various cases” until December 2017.
The higher regional court of Frankfurt said in a statement, “Balvir professedly provided information about figures in the Sikh opposition scene and the Kashmiri movement. He passed this on to his handlers who were working at the Indian consulate general in Frankfurt.”
The trial will open on the 25th of August 2020.
