New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday brought the captured Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naved to Delhi. He was captured after mounting an attack on a BSF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur area. Naved was remanded to NIA custody on Tuesday.
A special court Jammu handed over Naved to NIA for 14 days. NIA, which took over the case last week, has booked him under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for waging war against the nation, besides provisions of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and Arms Act.
Naved is said to have undergone two modules of training with LeT and is being considered a hardened militant who is trying to confuse his interrogators, a tactic apparently aimed at buying time for his other accomplices, who were part of the group that had sneaked into India and are missing, to slip away, the sources said.
