Pathankot: Punjab SP Salwinder Singh will be made witness by NIA
Singh was abducted by the terrorists who carried out the Pathankot attack faced a lie detector test by the NIA after the agency had found his answers to be contradictory in nature.
Singh who started the lie detector or polygraph test by saying, " ask me all you want, I have only the same thing to say," has been given a clean chit by the NIA.
The NIA will now make him a witness in the case. During the test, he said that he had not erred and added that it was he who immediately alerted the Punjab police about a possible strike by terrorists at Pathankot.
Singh was asked the same questions during the polygraph test. He stuck to what he had been saying when he was questioned repeatedly in the past two weeks.
He made it clear that he had visited the shrine along the Indo-Pak border as it was New Year's Eve and he did that every year.
He was clear in his answers when he said that he was the one who intimated the Punjab police about what the terrorists had been planning. On being asked why the terrorists had spared him, Singh said that they were not aware that he was a police officer.
In another development, the Central Forensic Sciences Laboratory will share with the Border Security Force a report on the foot prints of the terrorists. The made in Pakistan EPCOT shoes worn by the terrorists was sent to the laboratory for examination.
The foot marks which were examined will be shared with the BSF. The BSF would use this information to identify the exact entry point of the terrorists.
This would help the BSF identify the entry point. The BSF had said that there was nothing to show how the terrorists had infiltrated. The thermal imaging had not picked up anything and hence it was difficult to identify the infiltration point.
