NIA raided the residences of Gurdaspur SP Salwinder Singh and his close aides, in connection with the recent terror attack on the Indian Air Force base in Pathankot.

Gurdaspur SPThe raids are being conducted at several locations in Gurdaspur and Amritsar. NIA has so far not found any incriminating evidence pointing to the involvement of Gurdaspur SP in the Pathankot terror attack case.

According to sources, the NIA conducted searches at five locations in Punjab, including the residence of Salwinder Singh on, Thursday morning as the premier investigative agency hunts for clues in the case.

The senior Punjab Police officer on Tuesday underwent a lie detector test after being interrogated by the NIA for days as the agency found “inconsistencies” in his statements.

Singh was abducted by the six terrorists upon entering India and they later fled off with his car leaving him unharmed. The agencies are also suspicions about his involvement with a drug smuggling cartel.

Amritsar Police Commissioner Jatinder Singh Aulakh said that the NIA team had sought assistance of the police.

A lie detector test on Mr. Singh was conducted on Wednesday by the NIA as part of the probe into the attack on Indian Air Force base in Pathankot.

He will also be subjected to behavioural tests.

Sources said Mr. Singh is expected to be produced before a team of scientists soon. The panel will include a ‘behavioural analyst’ and ‘psychoanalyst’ who will give a scientific assessment of his personality.

“Two days after the lie detector test of Salwinder Singh, we carried out raids at six locations, four in Gurdaspur and two in Amritsar,” an NIA official, requesting anonymity said.

“The locations include the residential places of Singh, his friend Rajesh Verma and his cook Madangopal,” he added.
