Udhampur: Naved taken to Kashmir

Srinagar :-The lone arrested militant in Wednesday’s Udhampur  strike Mohammed Naved Yakub was on Friday brought in Srinagar for questioning as investigators prepared to visit all the places he had mentioned during interrogation in Jammu.

Naved was brought to Kashmir by road as the helicopters failed to take off because of bad weather, official sources said.

The sources said 23-year-old Naved will be taken to all the places that he had mentioned during interrogation after he was overpowered by two of the three villagers he had taken as hostages.

Naved along with another terrorist Noman had on Wednesday ambushed a BSF convoy killing two constables. Noman was also killed in retaliatory fire.

Naved was taken to places where the encounter took place as well as ‘Tamatar morh’ where he spent Tuesday night after taking a truck from Kulgam in South Kashmir.

The NIA took over investigations last evening after the Centre issued notification asking the central probe agency to handle the probe and get evidences which could be presented to Pakistan. Naved has claimed that he hails from Faislabad area of Pakistan.
