JAMMU: The captured Pakistani militant Mohammed Naved Yakub was today taken to New Delhi from Jammu for further questioning.
Naved was shifted to Joint Interrogation Centre (JIC) in Miran Sahib in Jammu and taken to New Delhi today by NIA team, police sources said here today.
NIA chief Sharad Kumar yesterday flew to Jammu to interrogate Naved, who was captured during an attack on a BSF bus last week.
Soon after arriving here at 11:30am, Kumar reached the Joint Interrogation Centre (JIC) at Miran Sahib on the outskirts of the city where he interrogated the militant, sources said.
At 13:10pm, he left for Udhampur district where a terrorist attack left two BSF personnel and one militant dead.
However, the NIA chief could not visit the attack site in Udhampur yesterday due to traffic snarls, but successfully visited the spot today.
Kumar yesterday also held meeting with police officers of Udhampur at Sheri Kashmir Police Academy, inspected the bus which was fired upon by the militants and personally spoke with the injured BSF jawans at military hospital in Udhampur yesterday.
He met some people connected with case and reported to have met army officers at Northern Command.
In a reply to reporters’ question while he was leaving from JIC at Miran sahib, Kumar said he had come to “ascertain the facts and review the case personally”.
Sources in the agency, which had sought Naved’s custody for further investigation, had yesterday said that he could be sent to Delhi for further questioning.
