What is a honeyTrap?
The honey trap is one of the most common tropes present in spy thrillers where an attractive man or woman is used to gain secrets from an individual, usually in a position of power in the state. The most well-known master of this practice was Markus Wolf, an East German spymaster who is said to have used good-looking male spies to target single, lonely women in West Germany, the secretaries of powerful individuals.
According to experts, the Pakistani intelligence agency(ISI) uses this tactics to mislead Indian Army jawans and making them detective. Apart from this, through the HoneyTrap, the youth works like an ISI spy who takes pictures of the cantonment area, tanker number and building and sends it to ISI. Earlier even such reports had come from various parts of the country.
Our enemy country Pakistan adopts several types of tactics to gather intelligence information from India. This work is also being done through HoneyTrap. During this time, any woman or girl joins the other country’s youth on a social site and then starts playing blackmailing or gathering information. Pakistani intelligence agency has recently used this weapon against India to acquire intelligence information from several jawans of the Indian Army.
