NIA to write Letters Rogatory to Pakistan seeking info on captured terrorist Naved
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is preparing to send a Letters Rogatory to Pakistan seeking info on alleged anti-India activities of captured terrorist Mohammad Naved Yakub, said reports on Wednesday.
Jammu: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is preparing to send a Letters Rogatory to Pakistan seeking info on alleged anti-India activities of captured terrorist Mohammad Naved Yakub, said reports on Wednesday.
The NIA is also set to approach a court to seek narco test on Naved. The move is being taken because the terrorist is changing his statements frequently.
Naved, who was captured after an attack on a BSF convoy, was yesterday remanded in the custody of the anti-terror agency.
A special court in Jammu handed over Naved's custody to the central agency for 14 days.
The terror attack in Udhampur district had left two BSF personnel and a terrorist dead.
The captured militant is alleged to be a resident of Faislabad in Pakistan.
On the other hand some reports also said that Naved may be sent to Delhi for further questioning.
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.
Meanwhile, the truck driver, who ferried Naved and his accomplice Mohammed Noman alias Momin to Udhampur, and a businessman who is alleged to have paid Rs five lakh to the terrorist and his handler, have been missing and a manhunt has been launched to apprehend them, as per PTI.
Noman was killed in retaliatory firing by BSF during Wednesday's attack.
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.
