Security forces handed over the accused to Gilgit-Baltistan police, who seized Indian currency, identity cards and other documents from the detainees.
Gilgit Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Raja Mirza Hassan presented the alleged spies to the media at a press conference.
The SSP said that both belonged to occupied Kashmir and they were forcibly sent to Pakistan for espionage but both were arrested immediately after crossing the LOC in Gilgit-Baltistan.
The detained Indian spies had introduced themselves as Noor Mohammad Wani and Feroz Ahmed Lone, residents of Achhora village in Gurez Tehsil of Bandipur District of Occupied Kashmir.
They had said that they had to enter Pakistan after being forced by Indian military officers, adding that the Indians had intimidated and tortured them and force them to work against Pakistan.
