"They were entrusted to deliver 600 patties (a snack) at the Officers' Mess in Air Force Station premises last evening. While coming and going in their van, Juber, with the help of his cell phone, started video shooting of the Air Force station premise, where photography or video shooting is prohibited," said the official.

"However, a patrolling team of the station spotted Juber and signalled the duo to stop the vehicle. However, they tried to flee the spot and after a brief chase, the security officials caught hold of them," he said. As per the official, when the cell phone was screened, footage of the Air Force station area was found.

"Since the duo could not give satisfactory answers as to why they carried out the video shooting and ultimately tried to escape, the security officials decided to hand them over to police," he said. Assistant Security Officer of the Air Force station registered a complaint following which a case under section 3 (penalties for spying) of The Official Secrets Act, 1923 was registered in this regard.

"Beside police, other agencies like the Intelligence Bureau too are investigating the matter," he said. The official said the background of the accused is being probed.
