Pathankot Attack: Punjab SP Salwinder Singh At NIA Headquarters For Interrogation


NEW DELHI -- Punjab Superintendent of Police Salwinder Singh on Monday reached the National Investigation Agency (NIA) Headquarters, where he will be interrogated in connection with the Pathankot airbase terror attack case.

Singh had been summoned by the NIA on Friday to appear before it for detailed interrogation.

Singh was allegedly abducted while riding a personal vehicle which was hijacked and later used by the terrorists on the night of 31st of last month.

He is presently posted as Assistant Commandant of 75th battalion of Punjab Armed Police and was recently shunted as SP (headquarters) of Gurdaspur following allegation of breach of discipline.

According to reports, there are contradictions in the SP's statement, due to which his statement is being verified repeatedly.
