A personal assistant of Samajwadi Party's Rajya Sabha MP Munvvar Saleem was today arrested by Delhi Police in connection with the espionage racket in which a Pakistan High Commission staffer was expelled from the country, the fourth arrest in the case.

The officer said that preliminary questioning has led to certain revelations that need to be further investigated as other names have cropped up.
