In questo turbolento 2011 non ci si annoia mai: dopo l'arresto delle spie emiratine in Oman, e' la volta di un omanita arrestato per spionaggio in India.

Times of India da' molti piu' dettagli dell'Agenzia Stampa Omanita ma, in tutta sincerita', non ho capito NULLA di quel che e' successo. Sara' il Bombay-English, saranno i pesantissimi spritz Campari ammannitimi ieri da Collega Americano, sara' la giornata di lavoro noiosissimo ma io non ci arrivo. Vedete un po' voi se riuscite a spiegarmi l'accaduto:

NEW DELHI: Investigating agencies are closely monitoring the arrest of an Omani citizen who was nabbed from a military area at Hisar in Haryana after he was suspected of spying. The arrest came after specific inputs from some of the top intelligence agencies of the country. He was found loitering in the army premises.

The special cell of Delhi Police is expected to question the accused after he claimed to have spent "a substantial" amount of time in the capital. The agencies, however, could not ensure police custody of the accused after a local court sent him to judicial custody for 14 days, Haryana police claimed on Saturday.

Hassan Bin Obdullah Bin Abraham (35) was picked up from the Army Equine Breeding Stud Farm premises here on Friday. He was produced before additional chief judicial magistrate Anshu Shukla, who sent him to judicial custody for 14 days.

Abraham claimed that he had arrived in India on November 25 last year and had visited Delhi, Ajmer, Bangalore and Mumbai. He claimed that his passport, visa and other identity papers were stolen while he was travelling in a train from Delhi to Amritsar. "We are verifying his claims. We have contacted the GRP in this regard," said an investigator. Police informed the Oman Embassy about this following which an officer from the embassy visited the police station here. Abraham has been booked under the Foreigners Act.

The police said it was too early to ascertain the exact role of the accused. "Since he talked of the theft, we are not likely to recover many documents from him unless the stolen property is recovered. It will take some time before we can get a clear picture," said a cop. The accused said he was being victimized after his documents were stolen.
