The NIA, which took over the case immediately after terrorists struck inside the IAF base during the intervening night of January 1 and 2, had summoned Singh as he was kidnapped by terrorists during the New Year night before they entered into the air base.
Singh, who is at present a Superintendent of Police rank officer posted as Assistant Commandant of 75th battalion of Punjab Armed Police after he was removed as SP (headquarters) Gurdaspur, had allegedly given contradictory statements about his kidnapping and sequences of events preceding and succeeding the hostage event, official sources said.
The NIA has also summoned his cook Madan Gopal to the headquarters for questioning and if need be the two would be confronted, a Home Ministry spokesperson said. The NIA has recorded statement of the caretaker of the shrine which Singh had said that he had visited with Gopal and
his jeweller friend Rajesh Verma, who was left bleeding with a cut below his throat by the terrorists after abducting the other two.
The caretaker, who is related to the cook, had told the sleuths that Gopal and Verma had come in the morning of December 31 and again in the evening and he was not aware of the reason for his visit to the shrine twice, official sources said.
