New Delhi: A Delhi court on Tuesday convicted a
Pakistani national for spying as he was found supplying secret
information to his handlers in the foreign country of that
country in 2005.

Additional Sessions Judge Dharmesh Sharma held Asim Waseem
alias Sumaar Ali guilty under Official Secrets Act and

Ali, 29, was arrested by Delhi police`s Special Cell

from Pakistan`s Rahimyar Khan district had entered the country
