NIA chief in J&K to grill Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naved Yakub

Srinagar: National Investigation Agency (NIA) Director General Sharad Kumar on Wednesday reached Joint Interrogation Centre at RS Pura sector in Jammu and Kashmir to interrogate captured Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naved Yakub.

Naved, who was captured after an attack on a BSF convoy, was on Tuesday remanded in the custody of the NIA.

A special court in Jammu handed over Naved's custody to the central agency for 14 days.

NIA, which took over the case last week, has booked him under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for waging war against the nation, besides provisions of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and Arms Act.

Naved is said to have undergone two modules of training with LeT and is being considered a hardened militant who is trying to confuse his interrogators, a tactic apparently aimed at buying time for his other accomplices, who were part of the group that had sneaked into India and are missing, to slip away, the sources said.
