NIA summons Punjab SP for questioning, picks up footprints

PATHANKOT: NIA today issued summons to a Punjab SP, who was allegedly abducted by terrorists involved in Pathankot attack, to appear before it on Monday for detailed interrogation even as the probe agency has picked up some foot prints in the fields of a border village and the IAF base here and sent them to central forensic lab for matching.

NIA teams have fanned out to various areas in Pathankot and adjoining Gurdaspur district for collecting evidence related to the audacious terror strike on the IAF base of Pathakot during intervening night of January one and two, official sources said.

The sources said that summons have been issued to Salwinder Singh, who is at present Assistant Commandant of 75th battalion of Punjab Armed Police, to appear before the agency for thorough questioning as there were some discrepancies in his statement to NIA and Punjab Police.

The sources did not rule out the possibility of subjecting him to lie detector test. (AGENCIES)
