New Delhi: A court here on Monday granted permission to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to conduct a polygraph or lie-detector test on arrested Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naved Yakub alias Usman.  

The lie-detector test will be conducted at 11 am on Tuesday.

Naved, a terrorist who was captured alive by locals during Udhampur terror attacks, was produced in Patiala House Court earlier today.

The captured terrorist, after the first round of investigation, had said that he hailed from Faisalabad, Pakistan and has since been changing his statement.

Meanwhile, Pakistan`s Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Syed Qazi Khalilullah had said that India should provide evidence of any Pakistani involved in terrorist activity on Indian soil, adding that they have constantly asked India to refrain from accusations.

Earlier this month, two BSF jawans were martyred when the militants attacked their convoy in Jammu and Kashmir`s Udhampur District.
