Home secretary RK Singh said the National Investigation Agency (NIA)— which was brought in to probe Shah’s controversial arrest by the Delhi Police— will investigate “where the truth lies”.

“And if he (Liyaqat) was coming to genuinely surrender, our attempt would be to release him to join his family as soon as possible,” Singh said on Tuesday.
