NEW DELHI: Mohammed Naved Yakub, the lone Pakistani terrorist caught alive in Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir following a terror attack on a BSF convoy, will undergo a polygraph test on Tuesday. The NIA stated that he was giving “inconsistent statements” on various occasions to hamper the leads in the investigation.
The LeT terrorist, responsible for the attack on a BSF bus in Udhampur on August 5 that left two personnel dead, was produced amid tight security before the Special NIA court here on Monday afternoon.
During the in-camera proceedings, District Judge Amar Nath allowed the investigative agency’s plea seeking permission to conduct a polygraph test of Naved, who hails from Faislabad in Pakistan.
“Keeping in view the seriousness and gravity of the offence, I am of the considered opinion that the polygraph test of the accused Naved is required to be conducted under the circumstances of the case as fully explained in the application,” the court said.
In their plea before the court, the NIA said, “During the course of the investigation, the accused (Naved) was found to have inconsistency in his statement on various occasions to hamper the leads in the investigation.”
