New Delhi: Former Indian Air Force official Ranjith KK, who was recently arrested on charges of spying for Pakistan-backed ISI, will be probed over Pathankot terror attack.

The Delhi Crime Branch will probe whether the dismissed IAF officer Ranjit had any role to play in the Pathankot terror attack, in which 2 jawans have been killed.

Ranjit, who was an airman in the Indian Air Force, was arrested in December last year, for allegedly sharing secret information with ISI. A native of Malappuram district of Kerala, Ranjit joined IAF in 2010. He was dismissed immediately by the IAF after being arrested by Delhi Police Crime Branch from Bhatinda in Punjab.

Ranjit, who was sent to four-day police custody, will be produced before the court today. Sources say that Delhi Police might ask for an extended custody to question the former IAF officer on Pathankot terror attack.
