Delhi: Gurdaspur SP Salwinder Singh may not have any links with terrorists who attacked Pathankot airbase, as per a media report.
India Today quoted sources in the National Investigation Agency as saying that investigators had not found any direct link between the Punjab police officer and the attackers of Pathankot airbase.
However, the channel did add that the agency had not yet given a clean chit to Salwinder Singh, who was allegedly kidnapped by terrorists hours before the assault on the air base, as yet.
But at the same time, during investigation the NIA had not uncovered any evidence suggesting Salwinder had advance information about the terror attack.
Yesterday, widening the probe in Pathankot terror attack case, NIA teams had visited Samba and Kathua areas of Jammu region where similar strikes had taken place last year and had quizzed for the second day the Punjab police officer, as per PTI.
The agency had claimed that Salwinder had been changing statements quite often.
NIA had also summoned Somraj, caretaker of Panj Peer Dargah in Punjab, which Singh had claimed to have visited before he was kidnapped by terrorists, who attacked the Pathankot Air Force base hours later.
The shrine is located a few kilometres from Bamiyal, the village from where the terrorists were suspected to have infiltrated India before mounting the attack.
