Pathankot: NIA to subject Punjab SP to lie detector test


Patahankot, Jan 15: The National Investigating Agency is likely to subject to Gurdaspur Superintendent of Police, Salwinder Singh, to a polygraph or lie detector test. The decision to subject Singh to a lie detector test was taken after it was found that his answers were not convincing enough. Singh was abducted by the terrorists who launched the Pathankot attack.

During the questioning of the Gurdaspur Superintendent of Police, Salwinder Singh, he had said that he had visited a shrine near the Indo-Pak border before he was abducted.


While the NIA is seeking to know why he had visited the shrine twice on December 31, they are also proposing to question the caretaker.

The NIA has sought to know why Singh visited the Shrine once again in the night of December 31 when he had already gone there that morning.

Was there any activity near that place is what seek to know, the NIA offier informed. The NIA is likely to question the caretaker of the shrine for more details. The shrine is located near Bamiyal, the village from where the terrorists are said to have infiltrated into India.

Meanwhile the National Investigating Agency is trying to find similarities between the Pathankot and the Dinanagar attacks, it is also trying to find out if anyone part of the Punjab militancy had a role to play.

While it has established by and large that the drug mafia had a role to play when it came to the infiltration of the terrorists into India, the NIA will also look to find if the Punjab militants had any link.

There have been intelligence bureau reports in the past which suggest that those part of the Punjab militancy had been hand in glove with the drug smugglers who operate along the Indo-Pak border.

Investigators would look into this angle as well since it is also trying to find out who locally had helped the terrorists who attacked Pathankot.
