Gurdaspur SP's abduction story false? Was he honeytrapped by Pakistan's ISI?

Pathankot: The role of the Punjab Police officer, who claimed he was abducted by the terrorists who attacked the Pathankot air base, has been under the scanner.

According to Firstpost, investigating agencies are claiming that Salwinder Singh may be working with Pakistan's ISI and militant organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad.

 

Superintendent of Police Salwinder Singh, his cook Madan Gopal and businessman friend Rajesh Verma, who were allegedly abducted by the terrorists in his vehicle, were being questioned by National Investigation Agency (NIA) officials at his official residence here on Tuesday evening.

The police superintendent had earlier claimed that he, along with Verma and the cook, were stopped and abducted by 4-5 heavily armed terrorists near Kolia village, 25 km from Pathankot, on the night of December 31. The attack at the Indian Air Force base took place at around 3.30 am on January 02. The police superintendent's seniors did not take his version seriously for many hours.

 

However, according to CNN-IBN, Singh may have been honey-trapped by the ISI.

The channel alleged that Singh's role in the Pathankot attack could be crucial, as he could have provided logistical support to the terrorists.

 

The counter offensive against the terrorists by security forces inside the Pathankot base saw six terrorists being killed. Security forces lost seven personnel.
