A soldier has been arrested from the Cantonment area here in Uttar Pradesh on charges of passing on military information to Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI, an official said on Wednesday.

Informed sources said the man was passing on "confidential and vital information" related to the Western Command. He used end-to-end encrypted messages on WhatsApp to a spy. He was picked few days after the police picked an engineer at the BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited in Maharashtra.

The man has been posted here for the past two years with a Signal regiment at Meerut. Military intelligence officers are said to be interrogating him.

The soldier hails from Uttarakhand and has been reportedly in touch with Pakistani officials for the past 10 months.

A court of enquiry has been ordered.
