New Delhi, Jan 7 (UNI) A CRPF personnel from Jammu and Kashmir, under scanner for his alleged role in the terror attack on the para-military force's group centre at Rampur in Uttar Pradesh on New Year day, had made several calls to his home state before the militants struck.

Javed Ahmed, a surrendered militant who was recruited into the CRPF in 2002 and attached with its 16 battalion, had ''miraculously escaped'' the terror assault at Rampur on January one in which eight people were killed.

Both the Uttar Pradesh and the CRPF were now questioning the constable.

Sources said the investigating officials seized his mobile phone from the room where his colleagues were killed by the militants.

The mobile calls were being traced and most of these were found to have made to Jammu and Kashmir, they added.

The sources said the mobile numbers were being traced and the investigations were expected to lead to a major breakthrough in the case.

The investigating officials have approached their counterparts in Jammu and Kashmir, seeking details of the telephone numbers to which the constable had made the calls, they added.

Heavily armed militants, believed to be two in number, in 'khaki' uniforms stormed the CRPF group centre and escaped after killing seven security personnel and a civilian.
