Pakistan intruder to be put to lie detection test
Vadodara, Dec 4 (UNI) The 20-year-old Pakistani intruder Aamir Sohail, now being grilled by the joint interrogation team of Gujarat and Central Intelligence sleuths for his suspected links with terrorist outfits, will be put to lie detection test.
After a series of bomb blasts ripped through commuter trains in Mumbai in July, the Pak national was apprehended at Vadodara railway station on the night of August 26 by an RPF team after he was found to be travelling to Mumbai without ticket in the Golden Temple Frontier Mail from Delhi and also possessing a missing passport of a Karachi-based lady.
Subsequently, Sohail was arrested under various sections of Foreigners Act and the Indian Passport Act on September 14 and was grilled by the State and Central Intelligence sleuths for another 10 days in GRP custody before he was remanded to judicial custody.
GRP Superintendent Anupamsinh Gehlot today said the investigating team which had almost completed its job, has decided to go for the lie detection test of the accused before filing a chargesheet in the court.
Mr Gehlot, without revealing details of the investigation into Sohail's possible terrorist links, said investigating teams had visited Wagah border, Attary and many other places and were now pinning their hopes on the lie detection test to be carried out soon.
He said the chargesheet in the case was likely to be filed in the court by the end of this month after getting required permission from the Union Home Ministry.
A resident of Rajajung in Pakistan's Kasuri district, Sohail, who first faked his identity, later admitted that he sneaked into India through the Wagah border by giving slips to both Pakistani and Indian security personnel.
Though Sohail maintained that he had no link with any terrorist outfits, the investigating agencies suspect his move behind boarding a train for Mumbai as the accused has no relatives there.
