A $30,000 IT job in Canada lured BrahMos engineer Nishant Aggarwal in ISI web

A $30,000 IT job in Canada lured BrahMos engineer Nishant Aggarwal in ISI webFor Nishant Aggarwal, the lure of a $30,000/month IT job in Canada was too much to resist. So, when as part of the offer, he was asked for “specimens” of his work at the BrahMos missile project, the young scientist immediately complied.

That proved to be the folly of Nishant, the engineer with BrahMos Aerospace Pvt Ltd who was arrested for sharing crucial details of the supersonic missile project with Pakistani agents.

Canada-based ‘Sejal Kapoor’, with whom Nishant chatted regularly on Facebook, then invited the engineer to interact on LinkedIn. Later, she sent a ‘link’ to Nishant so that he could chat with her seniors too. When he clicked the link, a malware was downloaded in his computer. Using the malware, substantial data was stolen from Nishant’s computer.

In the panchnama, however, ATS officials mentioned that Nishant told them that ‘Sejal Kapoor’ used to chat from the Facebook profile of ‘Pooja Ranjan’.

During his interrogation, Nishant is also learnt to have admitted that he used to regularly chat with another ‘Neha Sharma’ on Facebook. While his chat remained restricted to only a few times with ‘Neha’, whose link has been traced to Pakistan, Nishant had spent considerable time chatting with ‘Sejal’.
