Srinagar: Ahead of NAS level talks between India and Pakistan, NIA chief Sharad Kumar may brief Ajit Doval on the progress made so far in probing captured Pakistani militant Mohammad Naved Yakub, as per sources in the anti-terror agency.
Pakistan's NSA Sartaz Aziz is due to arrive in the national capital on August 23 and hold talks with Doval.
Reports said that acts of terror committed by Islamabad-backed elements will figure in the talks.
Also, specific information on nearly a dozen jihadi training facilities which India believes have re-started after being closed following the 26/11 attacks and details on action from Pakistan against on-the-run terrorists of the Indian Mujahideen group are said to be on the agenda.
At the same time, India will also reportedly place a request for information on Naved alias Usman Khan.
Naved was captured by locals after the recent terror strike on a BSF bus at Udhampur in Jammu which left two personnel of the border guarding force dead.
While Naved has told his interrogators he is from Faislabad in Pakistan's Punjab province, Islamabad has been insisting he is not a Pakistani national.
Meanwhile, the NIA chief flew down to Srinagar today to review the progress made during the interrogation of Naved.
Sources in the agency said some people with whom Naved came into contact during his stay in Jammu and Kashmir may also be questioned, as per PTI.
Kumar, sources said, was likely to return tomorrow and brief Doval about what transpired during Naved's interrogation.
Naved, who was brought here yesterday after undergoing polygraph test in the national capital, was taken to various places during which he identified some of the people who had helped him during his stay in the Valley.
