Indian Sikh couple gets punished for spying on Sikhs and Kashmiris in Germany

Holding the Indian Sikh couple guilty of spying on pro-freedom Sikhs and Kashmiris living in Germany, the Higher Regional Court in Frankfurt today addressed one-and-a-half-year suspended jail sentence for illegal espionage activities to Manmohan Singh and a fine equivalent to 180 days of income to his wife Kanwal Jit Kaur for aiding and abetting such activities.

It is learnt that that the couple eventually confessed to regular meetings with a RAW handling officer to hand over information during the trial of this case. On March 28 this year, Manmohan Singh and his wife Kanwal Jit Kaur were booked under espionage charges for providing information about the movements of Sikhs and Kashmiris to an official of India’s Research & Analysis Wing (RAW) since January 2015 for the sake of money.

Manmohan Singh and his wife Kanwaljit Kaur had received a total of 7,200 euros (about $8,100) for the information they provided to their handler stationed in Germany.
