NIA gets 14-day custody of naveed

Jammu :A local court remanded suspected LeT Pakistani militant Mohammed Naved Yakub to National Investigation Agency’s custody for 14 days on Tuesday to allow the anti-terror agency to question him about the terror outfit’s suspected bid to attack a BSF convoy recently. NIA’s head Sharad Kumar will question Naved — the only one of the two suspected militants to survive the gun battle that followed the attack on the convoy on Wednesday.

Kumar, who is expected to visit Jammu on Wednesday, refused to disclose what the agency has found so far.

“It’s a very important case for us and the entire probe is being done in a scientific manner,” Kumar, who will also visit the scene of the encounter in Udhampur district that left two BSF personnel and a terrorist dead, said.
