When Farhat approached me a year ago, I had sent communication to Parliament and government for his verification. After the arrest of Farhat, several agencies has already started to probe Munawwar Saleem, though there are no official questioning done by them.
Samajwadi Party's Rajya Sabha MP Munawwar Saleem on Saturday denied on Saturday that he was aware of his personal assistant Farhat's involvment in espionage activities. Police is questioning the suspected Pakistani spy. Government of India feelts that the step is an afterthought following apprehension of Pakistan High Commission staffer Mehmood Akhtar in Delhi while indulging in anti-India activities.
Another accused Sohaib was detained in Jodhpur and brought to Delhi by the police where he was arrested.
Akhtar was allowed to leave after it was revealed that he worked with the Pakistani High Commission and was entitled to diplomatic immunity. A day after the espionage racket was unearthed, one more accomplice of Akhtar, a Jodhpur-based passport and visa agent Shoaib was also arrested from Jodhpur on Thursday.
It was Akhtar who disclosed the names of Ramzan Khan and Subhash Jangir who were also arrested on October 27 and gave names of other alleged informants within India.

Mr Trump's strategy was "to make this election so dirty and ugly that we don't want any part of it", she said. Clinton will campaign in Iowa after appearing Thursday in North Carolina with First Lady Michelle Obama.
This interrogation took place before Akhtar was handed over to the Pakistan High Commission..
TV channels also aired a confessional video of Mehmood Akhtar in which he purportedly named Farhat besides others including Syed Farruq, Khadim Hussain, Shahid Iqbal and Iqbal Cheema, claiming that they were also "staffers".
Indian Foreign Secretary summoned the Pakistan High Commissioner Mr. Abdul Basit and informed him that India had intercepted an official of the Pakistan High Commission in the pursuit of espionage and that he was being declared "Persona Non Grata".
Tensions between India and Pakistan have escalated further after Mehmood was briefly detained for allegedly running the spy ring that collected sensitive information about Indian security operations.
