NEW DELHI: Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naved Yakub has been taken to a high security location in Delhi for a polygraph or lie detector test.
A court on Monday allowed the National Investigation Agency to take a lie detector test on Naved, who was captured after he and his accomplice attacked a paramilitary convoy on August 5 in Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur.
After he was caught, Naved told his interrogators that he was from Faisalabad in Pakistan and was trained by the terror outfit Lashkar e Taiba.
Souces say Naved has told the National Investigation Agency that he was a compulsive gambler and had been thrown out of his house.
He allegedly also said he was asked to carry out strikes in India and was promised payment. He reportedly claimed that he was given a white tablet to take before the attack in Udhampur.
Naved, who in his early 20s, was in court when the anti-terror agency was also granted permission to collect his DNA and voice samples.
The National Investigation Agency told the court that Naved had been inconsistent in his statements, which was affecting investigations.
The polygraph test is being conducted at the Central Forensic Science Laboratory.
