NIA raids Punjab SP's house


The National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is investigating the Pathankot terror attack case, conducted raid and searches at five places, including the residences and office of Punjab SP, Salwinder Singh and his friends.

The Gurdaspur office of Salwinder Singh and residence of his jeweller friend Rajesh Verma, whose throat was slit allegedly by the terrorists, after kidnapping them along with a cook, were also searched by the NIA sleuths.

The raid took place after the NIA interrogated Singh multiple times in Delhi. A lie detector test on Singh was also conductedon Wednesday by the NIA as part of the probe into the attack on Indian Air Force base in Pathankot. According to sources in the NIA, he will also be subjected to behavioural tests which is likely to take place this weekend.Sources also said Singh will be produced before a team of behavioural analyst and psychoanalyst who will give a scientific assessment of his personality.

The NIA is questioning Singh to ascertain the sequence of events that took place after he was allegedly kidnapped on the intervening night of 31 December 2015 and 1 January by terrorists of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). 
Singh came under the scanner after he said that he and the cook were released after their abduction whereas one of their friends, who was travelling with them — Rajesh Verma — had been left bleeding midway by the terrorists. 
Also, his statement that he was returning from a shrine which he often visited, was allegedly found to be incorrect after NIA questioned the caretaker of the dargah, Somraj, who told the probe agency that the police officer had come for the first time.
