    New Delhi: Nabbed in a crackdown on a multi-billion hawala racket operating in Delhi-NCR, Luo Sang, alias Charlie Peng, is suspected to be an agent of the Chinese intelligence service, the Ministry of State Security.

    Luo Sang, who created the fake Indian identity of Charlie Peng through forged Aadhaar cards and travel documents, was earlier arrested by Delhi Police on charges of espionage in 2018, top intelligence sources revealed to this agency.

    Trained in money exchange, hawala operations and accounts, Sang then came to India where he was ostensibly collecting information on whereabouts of key Tibetan refugees and people close to Dalai Lama in India, sources added.

    The Delhi Police's Special Cell arrested Sang, September 13, 2018 on charges of running a spy ring in India, and seized from him a forged Indian passport procured from Manipur.

    The Special Cell team had recovered a Fortuner SUV, foreign currency and some important documents from Sang when he was nabbed in 2018 on suspicion for visiting some sensitive places in Himachal Pradesh and border areas.
