The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will probe the recent gunfight at Nagrota in the Jammu region in which the police claimed four militants of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), a Pakistan-based outfit, were killed by the government forces, reported Press Trust of India.
The probe agency took over the case following a notification issued by the Centre. The militants were killed on 19 November in Jammu and Kashmir’s Nagrota area in an operation by the police.
The NIA probe will try to ascertain the planning and final objective of the four JeM militants and the people with whom they were in touch with in Jammu and Kashmir. The agency’s team had visited the encounter site at Ban Toll Plaza on 19 November.
The NIA is already probing a gunfight that took place on 31 January this year in which three militants from the JeM were killed. (PTI)
