The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has yet to clear Punjab superintendent of police Salwinder Singh, who was allegedly abducted by a group of Pakistani terrorists before they launched a daring attack on the Pathankot air base.
Sources said Singh has been suspected to be “less that truthful” in his statements to the NIA during questioning.
“His status is yet to be decided. After the questioning, the NIA will review his answers to decide whether he is an accused or a witness in the case,” a Union home ministry official said.
Singh reached the NIA headquarters at 10.45am on Monday after being summoned by the anti-terror agency in connection with its investigation into the Pathankot attack. The police officer didn’t speak while entering the NIA office.
