A team of National Investigation Agency (NIA), which was interrogating Bangladeshi national Ahmad Siddiqui in Gwalior, went to Uttar Pradesh on Thursday to verify the facts Siddiqui has revealed during the interrogation.

Siddiqui was caught by the local police from Gwalior railway station area on September 21. He had told the police that while he was working in Saudi Arabia, he had met a person from Gwalior.

According to Siddiqui, he had come to the city to meet the person. However, police claimed to have recovered a compact disk (CD) from his possession which revealed Siddiqui was working on a particular mission. Later, an Intelligence Bureau (IB) team interrogated him.

Siddiqui is reported to have told his interrogators about three of his e-mail ids. According to IB, they have recovered important information from the e-mail Ids. Now, a National Investigation of Agency team is interrogating him. Sources said Siddiqui's links were found in Chennai and two other cities of Uttar Pradesh.

"During the interrogation, he has revealed several things which we have to verify. One of our teams went to UP to verify these facts," said a National Investigation of Agency officer, on condition of anonymity. NIA sources said Siddiqui had visited several places in India including Chennai, Agra, Delhi, Kolkata and Aligarh.
