New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday took over the case of Wednesday’s Udhampur terror strike in which a Pakistani terrorist, who was caught alive by villagers, has said that he had undergone training in two different modules with Lashker-e-Taiba terror group.
A team of NIA, a central probe agency created after the 2008 Mumbai attack, headed by Inspector General Sanjeev Kumar Singh, has been camping in Jammu since on Wednesday and has visited the site of the encounter, official sources said.
Singh has been dealing with several terror related cases including the Burdhwan blast of West Bengal.
The NIA team will examine the BSF personnel which was part of the convoy and the villagers who had shown exemplary bravery in nabbing the armed terrorist, the sources said.
