The NIA said the polygraph test on the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist will be conducted at 11 am on Tuesday at the Forensic Science Laboratory situated in Central Delhi’s Lodi Road. Last week, the agency had shifted Naveed alias Usman to New Delhi from Jammu and Kashmir.
The NIA obtained a 14-day remand for the custodial interrogation of the accused from a special NIA designate court in Jammu on August 10. Naveed and another terrorist had attacked a BSF bus on August 5 at Narsu Nallah in Udhampur district, killing two troopers and injuring 11 others.
While Naveed’s accomplice was killed in the gunfight with BSF troopers, he managed to escape to Samroli, 15 km from the attack site on the Jammu-Srinagar highway. He later took three people hostage in a house in Chirdi village. The Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist was, however, overpowered by his hostages and handed over to local police. The NIA team brought Naveed to the Valley last week to establish his terror links.
The NIA rounded up around a dozen people who allegedly sheltered the terrorist and facilitated his passage from the Valley to the terror attack site. A local businessman, alleged to have given Rs 5 lakh to Abu Dujana, the LeT mastermind of the Udhampur attack, is still absconding.
