Pathankot probe: Punjab SP undergoes polygraph test
New Delhi, Jan 19: The National Investigating Agency on Tuesday, Jan 19 subject former Gurdaspur Superintendent of Police, Salwinder Singh, to a polygraph 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.
Singh during his various rounds of questioning has made it clear to the NIA that he has nothing more to say.
You question me as many times as possible, I have only the same thing to say, he said during his questioning.
The NIA has sought to know how Singh was given the benefit by the terrorists. Normally terrorists do not let people get away alive. Singh however told the NIA that he was let off probably because he was a Sikh.
