New Delhi: The government on Tuesday said a total

forces since 2008 in the country.

"During the last three years and the current year (2008
to 2011 till date), a total of 46 Pakistan-backed espionage
modules were busted in the country," Minister of State for
Home Jitendra Singh informed Lok Sabha in a written reply.

However, Singh said, no cases of espionage, specifically
by people working in foreign companies have been reported.

The minister said the government has been pursuing a well
coordinated and multi-pronged approach to tackle such
activities by strengthening the intelligence machinery,
ensuring a close interaction and coordination between
different agencies of the Centre and the state governments.
