New Delhi: She risked everything for ‘Jim’ Jamshed, an ISI operative she wanted to marry and to whom she passed on classified information but disgraced Indian diplomat Madhuri Gupta complained he had treated her “like a dog”.
This picture of the 53-year-old former second secretary in the Indian High Commission in Islamabad is drawn in the chargesheet submitted by the Delhi Police before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja today.
Gupta, who was arrested in April, has been accused of passing classified information to Jamshed and another ISI official, Mubshar Raza Rana.
The chargesheet and annexures running into over 700 pages referred to contents of a letter by Gupta to Rana on October 3, 2009, in which she said, “I have done my best for him (Jamshed) and for his sake but he treats me like a dog”.
“He has no consideration for me nor does he make any effort to understand my position. Till we are married and till I am in the present job, I have to behave accordingly. But Jim has strong objections to my socialising with any Pakistani…I am not used to sitting at home in purdah,” the letter quoted in the chargesheet said.
Gupta wrote, “It is better that we part our ways. Tell Jim that Pakistani ko aajma ke dekh liya (I have understood a Pakistani)”.
In the letter, Gupta named herself as Javeria.
“The contents of an email showed that she was in love with Jim (Jamshed). Both had planned to get married. It is further very clear from the contents that Jim is a Pakistani. The motive is clear and established from the email,” the chargesheet said.
