New Delhi/IBNS: The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday said it would investigate whether arrested officer Davinder Singh had any possible role in the 2001 Parliament attack, media reports said.

The case has been handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Davinder Singh, a Deputy Superintendent of Police posted at Srinagar International Airport, was caught on Saturday at Wanpoh on Jammu-Srinagar highway in Kulgam district.

He was arrested along with three Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists.

After the arrests, arms and ammunition were seized from various parts of the city. An Ak-47 and two pistols were found in Davinder Singh's residence in Srinagar's Indranagar area.

Asked about whether Davinder Singh's possible role in the parliament attack was being investigated, Jammu and Kashmir police chief Dilbagh Singh told NDTV: "Aspects can be looked into if anything comes to light. There's no bar to any aspect being looked into. Like the adviser to the Governor said, black sheep can be found anywhere. Be it anybody, we don't spare anyone involved in unlawful acts."

Singh received President's Police Medal for Gallantry last year and was part of the envoys of 15 foreign nations on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir.

According to NDTV,  on Friday Davinder Singh escorted the terrorists from Shopian in south Kashmir to his home, where they stayed overnight.

The news organisation reported that top Hizbul Mujahideen commander Naveed Babu and his two accomplices Irfan and Rafi spent the night in Singh's official residence which shares a wall with Army's 15 Corps Headquarters. Singh and the three militants set out on Saturday morning for Jammu, from where they had plans to go to Delhi.

Singh, who was decorated with President's Police Medal for Gallantry just six months ago, had transported Naveed to several places. Last year, he had escorted him to Jammu, the NDTV report added.

Police, interrogating Singh, is yet to learn if his visit to Delhi had anything to do with the Republic Day.
