April 09, 2019 - 6:53 AM

BERLIN - German prosecutors say they have indicted two Indian citizens for spying on the Sikh opposition and Kashmiri separatists in Germany.

Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that 50-year-old Manmohan S. is accused of providing information to India's foreign intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing, from January 2015 onward.

His wife, 51-year-old Kanwal Jit K., allegedly also began co-operating with the spy agency starting in July 2017. Their full names weren't released due to German privacy rules.

Prosecutors said the couple is accused of receiving a total of 7,200 euros (about $8,100) for the information they provided to their handler, who was stationed in Germany.
