0

Naveed, the Lashar-e-Taiba operative arrested for the 5 August attack on BSF convoy in Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir, was produced before the Chief Judicial Magistrate S Gupta on Monday.

He was expected to record his statement after he already confessed to his involvement in the attack. Instead, the court remanded him to judicial custody for two days. This is to ensure that any statement made by Naveed, who has been held by the NIA since his arrest, is not made under duress, making it invalid in court.

While his colleague was shot dead after an encounter with the security forces, he ran away to a near by village.  A hostage situation ensued, ending with the villagers overpowering the Pakistani terrorist and handing him over to police.
