Pak targets Indian army school students for sensitive info

Indian Army has issued a warning that Pakistani Intelligence Operatives (PIOs) are reaching out to students, including those from Army Public Schools across India, through phone calls and WhatsApp messages.

People pretend to be school teachers, approach students and convince them to join fake class groups. They then ask the students to share sensitive information using one-time passwords., reported PTI, referring to Army sources.

Two mobile phone numbers, 8617321715 and 9622262167 have been identified from which the students have been contacted.

To establish their credibility, the PIOs begin by mentioning something familiar to the students. Army Public Schools have released an advisory, urging educational institutions to educate teachers and students about this matter. 

Indian Army spokesperson said, “We are closely monitoring the situation and coordinating with relevant authorities to counter these cyber threats effectively. It is essential for parents and schools to educate students about responsible online behavior and reporting any suspicious activities,”
