Bangalore, Apr 8 (UNI) Lashkar-e-Toiba operative Sabauddin alias Saba was subjected to narco analysis tests by the Corps of Detectives (CoD) at Bowring Hospital here today.
CoD officials said the narco tests on the LeT operative, who was among the six terrorists arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police in Lucknow last month, would continue tomorrow.
Deputy Director of Forensic Science Laboratories Dr Malini was conducting the test and elicited a large amount of information from the LeT operative, they said.
''We are intensely questioning Saba on his movements and activities in the city during his one-year stay in 2005, when he masterminded the LeT attack on Indian Institute of Science in which one scientist was killed and four others injured,'' the officials said.
During the last one week, the arrested had been taken to various places in the city and outside, where he had frequented. ''We took him to his room where he stayed during his stay in the city and also visited cyber cafes from where he had sent e-mails to the higher ups in the terrorist organisation.'' The police custody of Saba would end on April ten and CoD sleuths are going full stem ahead in questioning him.
The CoD would produce him in a Lucknow court On April ten and seek police custody for a further period, officials said.
Sabauddin had allegedly revealed to the police that he had master minded the IISc attack after being sent to Bangalore by the LeT bosses with a specific mission to attack vital installations. He had identified four targets, out of which IISc was chosen as an international seminar held there during December 2005.
While a Delhi-based Mathematician Dr M C Puri died in the shoot-out, another four persons including three scientists sustained bullet injuries in the incident. The attack was carried out by Pakistan-based Fidayeen Abu Hamza. Both the terrorists had then fled from the country.
While Saba went to Kathmandu to take over the LeT operations in the erstwhile Himalayan Kingdom, Hamza had fled back to Pakistan.
