Udhampur attack:NIA has long probe ahead

While granting the request made by the NIA, the court ordered 14 days custody.

NIA has a long probe ahead:

The probe by the NIA into the Udhampur attack will be a long drawn one and would cover several aspects. The questioning of Naved will be crucial as he is expected to give the NIA several details leading up to the Udhampur attack.

A NIA source informed OneIndia that they are also probing into the local links of Naved. Around 12 persons are already under the scanner for knowingly and also unknowingly providing help to Naved and his accomplice, Noman who had died in the attack. The route which was taken by Naved and Noman before infiltrating into India will also be under the purview of the NIA.

I have nothing more to say:

Naved is no longer smiling. When he was arrested he was beaming in front of the cameras. However all that has changed now and he has realized the seriousness of his offence. He was in fact told that he can be hanged until death if he is proven guilty and one of the many charges against him is that of murder under Section 302 of the IPC.

However Naved appeared to be particularly irritated with a question regarding the route he took to reach Udhampur. He lost his cool in custody and told his interrogators, how many times am I supposed to tell you the same thing. I really do not have anything more to say, he also told the police in Jammu and Kashmir.
