Delay Tolerant networking is a field that lies under the wireless networks that is characterized by intermittent connectivity and frequent disruptions. In this paper, an approach is presented where the DTN nodes can be deployed as spy nodes in highly sensitive border areas. These nodes would act as data acquisition nodes, would acquire data from the surroundings, and transfer it to the respective commanding officer or the monitoring authority. Therefore, they work as spy in border regions, capable of sensing even minute movements of the enemies and alarming the soldiers well in time.
