New Delhi, Aug 19: I have no idea where the other two men are and what they are planning, Mohammad Naved who is being investigated in connection with the Udhampur attack has said.

Naved who was subject to a ten hour lie detector test on Tuesday has given plenty of information and now the answers will be analysed by polygraph experts before a final conclusion is drawn.

No clue of accomplices, says Naved

The results of a polygraph test cannot however be used as evidence in court and the information derived from the test can be used as a tool to gather leads and further the investigation.

We came in a batch of four

Naved who along with Noman carried out the Udhampur attack said during the test that they were a batch of four. It is clear that he does not know the real names of the other two persons who are still absconding, an officer informed.

The names that have been given are Zargam and Okasha and it is clear that these are fake names. Naved however maintained that after landing up in Kashmir they had split into buddy pairs.

Noman and I were heading to Udhampur, but I do not know where the other two are he also said. All I can say is that we split into two groups at Awantipora, Naved also said.

Details on the handler

Naved's questioning makes it clear that he had a handler in Kashmir. He has referred to him as Abu Qasim and officials say that this is once again not the real name. None of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba commanders ever use their real name and the same is also not made known to the operatives.

Abu Qasim is a Lashkar handler and appears to have played a major role in the Udhampur attack. He is the one who guided all the four men after they landed in Kashmir, the officer informed while quoting what Naved had told them. It is clear that the two missing terrorists too are being handled by Qasim.

Naved is not sure whether the two other terrorists have left Kashmir.

However,  what the inputs suggest is that they are still in India and are looking to carry out a strike, an NIA official informed while also informing that a Rs 10 lakh reward has been placed on these two men.

Naved also narrated that they were given six grenades and an AK-47 rifle before they set out. His answers were clear on certain fronts. He also confirmed that he is from Paksitan during the test.
