NEW DELHI: Captured Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Naved Yakub was subjected to lie detector test today after he had made 'contradictory and misleading' statements about his Indian contacts and the route taken his group to infiltrate India.

Pursuant to a Delhi court order, he was brought to Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) this morning under tight security and kept in isolation for some time before being subjected to the polygraph test.

Official sources said officials from various security and intelligence agencies including the Intelligence Bureau were present during the test, whose detailed analysis is awaited.

In a related development, NIA today released two sketches of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists, who were claimed to have infiltrated Jammu and Kashmir's Gulmarg sector with Naved. The anti-terror agency also announced a cash reward of Rs five lakh to anyone providing information leading to their arrest.

The two have been identified as Zarghan alias Mohammed Bhai, aged about 38-40 years, and Abu Okasha, around 17-18 years old.

During the test for which Naved had given written consent, he is believed to have been questioned about how many people were with him when the group infiltrated Jammu and Kashmir and people he had met and lived with during his two-month stay in the state.

Sources in the NIA said Naved had been giving conflicting statements about the strength of the group and the route taken by it to sneak into India, besides those with whom he came into contact in J&K.

He had also given wrong information about the number plate of the vehicle that carried him and accomplice Noman to 'Tamatar Modh' on Jammu-Srinagar highway on August 4, lest it would expose those helping LeT.

The NIA also took DNA and voice samples of Naved who was overpowered by the locals following the attack on a BSF bus in Udhampur district of Jammu on August five that left its two personnel dead. His accomplice Mohammed Noman alias Momin was killed in retaliatory firing by the BSF.

NIA sources said collecting the DNA samples of the militant from Faisalabad in Pakistan could help in proving his nationality. Islamabad has been insisting that Naved is not a Pakistani national.

Before being brought from Jammu last weekend, Naved, in his 20s, was confronted with other militants from Faisalabad lodged in various jails and his interrogators concluded he was not lying about where he hailed from.
