Home ministry officials told ET that the summons was issued in connection with the NIA probe into the alleged involvement of Singh, who was arrested by the J&K police along with Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) terrorists in January this year.

The federal agency took over the probe later and filed one charge sheet into the role of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), HM militants and Singh.
