New Delhi: Captured Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Naved Yakub, who was subjected to lie detector test here on Tuesday, will be taken to Jammu by the NIA officials.

According to reports, Naved will be asked to identify those places which he and his close aides had planned to target.

Naved had made 'contradictory and misleading' statements about his Indian contacts and the route taken by his group to infiltrate India during his questioning by the authorities earlier.

Naved alias Usman Khan had reportedly admitted during the polygraph test that he is from Pakistan and was trained at LeT camp there.

Naved had also admitted that he was told to target security forces in India.

During the test for which Naved had given written consent, he is believed to have been questioned about how many people were with him when the group infiltrated Jammu and Kashmir and people he had met and lived with during his two-month stay in the state.

Official sources said officials from various security and intelligence agencies including the Intelligence Bureau were present during the test, whose detailed analysis is awaited.

In a related development, NIA also yesterday released two sketches of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists, who were claimed to have infiltrated Jammu and Kashmir's Gulmarg sector with Naved. The anti-terror agency also announced a cash reward of Rs five lakh to anyone providing information leading to their arrest.

The two have been identified as Zarghan alias Mohammed Bhai, aged about 38-40 years, and Abu Okasha, around 17-18 years old.

The NIA also took DNA and voice samples of Naved who was overpowered by the locals following the attack on a BSF bus in Udhampur district of Jammu on August five that left its two personnel dead. His accomplice Mohammed Noman alias Momin was killed in retaliatory firing by the BSF.

NIA sources said collecting the DNA samples of the militant from Faisalabad in Pakistan could help in proving his nationality.

Islamabad has been insisting that Naved is not a Pakistani national.
