Jammu: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday shifted Udhampur terror attack accused Muhammad Naveed alias Usman to New Delhi from Jammu and Kashmir.
“A special team of the NIA, headed by senior superintendent of police Atul Goel, shifted the accused today (Thursday) to New Delhi in a BSF helicopter,” police sources told Media Sources in Jammu.
The NIA obtained a 14-day remand for the custodial interrogation of the accused from a special NIA designate court in Jammu on August 10.
The Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist was, however, overpowered by his hostages and handed over to local police.
The NIA team brought Naveed to the Valley last week to establish his terror links.
The NIA rounded up around a dozen people who allegedly sheltered the terrorist and facilitated his passage from the Valley to the terror attack site.
A local businessman, alleged to have given Rs.5 lakh to Abu Dujana, the LeT mastermind of the Udhampur attack, is still absconding.
