Sydney: Australia has quietly expelled four Indian spies for targeting defense technology, politicians and airport security.

The latest eviction of the spies is being hailed as a huge blow to the Modi government in Australia as well.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) in its investigation revealed the expulsion of four spies from India.

Despite strong public relations between Canberra and New Delhi, in 2020 Australian authorities discovered an Indian espionage network aimed at gaining access to defense technology, security protocols, and sensitive information about former and current politicians and to monitor the Indian Australian community.

India's espionage activities have already been exposed in Canada and the US, and a network of spies was being created to influence Australian lawmakers.

In 2021, Australian intelligence chief Mike Burgess uncovered an unnamed ‘network of spies’ in India and exposed spies masquerading as diplomats.

Burgess confirmed that spies posing as diplomats developed relationships with politicians and state police and sought classified information about airport security.

The ABC revealed that the ousted spies were targeting Australian politicians and individuals and organisations associated with defense technologies as a result of the investigation.

However, these spies have been quietly removed from the country by the authorities so as not to be a source of embarrassment and shame for the Modi government, but voices are being raised from within Australia for not publicly condemning espionage.

Greens’ Senator David Shoebridge has demanded that Australia publicly condemn India, that Australia should speak openly about the matter and name the country whose espionage network has been caught.
