NEW DELHI -- The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will conduct lie detector-test on Gurdaspur Superintendent of Police Salwinder Singh, who was questioned in connection with the Pathankot attack, today.

A Special Delhi court had yesterday granted permission to NIA to conduct the test.

Allegedly kidnapped and released by terrorists before the Pathankot terror attack, Singh was questioned for the fifth consecutive day last week at the NIA headquarters in Delhi.

Singh had claimed that he, along with his cook and a friend, were abducted by terrorists on his way back from Panj Pir shrine.

Singh, along with his jeweller friend Rajesh Verma and cook Madan Gopal, were allegedly kidnapped by terrorists on December 31.

The terrorists entered the Pathankot air base late night on January 1 and carried out a terror strike in which seven security personnel including a Lt Colonel of NSG were killed.

Seven security personnel died in the attack of the IAF base in Pathankot, located 250 km from Chandigarh, by terrorists suspected from Pakistan.
