Probe has revealed that slain Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was allegedly certified as a resident of Lucknow.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary NC Bajpai has ordered an inquiry into how the Qaida Iraq unit chief was reportedly issued a domicile certificate by the Lucknow district administration.

He took serious note of reports that the terrorist was registered in the name of Ama Zarqawi and made eligible for unemployment doles.

The reports alleged that the certificate, which is issued after due verification, was given without following the set process.

Bajpai directed the principal secretary concerned and district administration to initiate necessary "disciplinary action" against those responsible for the lapse.
