Panaji, Feb 5: The investigations being conducted following the arrest of a retired Major General's son for alleged ISIS links in Goa may just turn out to be a damp squib.
The Goa ATS had picked up Sameer Sardana from the Vasco railway station in Goa after he was found to be suspiciously loitering around.
After the arrest, a team of the National Investigating Agency too questioned him. So far the NIA team has not found anything to link him to the terror plot the agency had recently busted. Questioning Sardana at the crime branch office in Panaji, the NIA officials prima facie did not find anything on him.
While there is nothing immediately to suggest that he is part of any terror nexus, the Goa ATS which has his seven days custody will continue to question him. There are some issues relating to Sardana which appear to be very suspicious in nature. First and foremost the police had seized five Indian passports with him.
The police also want to know why he was staying in a railway dormitory since January 22. His father who lives in Dehradun since he retired said that there is some confusion and his son would be released soon.
