Sources told DH that a six-member NIA team led by a inspector general (IG) level officer reached Uri in Baramulla, 102 km from here, after getting clearance from the Union Home Ministry to take over the investigation into the terror attack.

“On their arrival in Uri, the NIA team had a brief discussion with senior Army officers in the area. The team will look into all aspects of how the four heavily armed terrorists managed to sneak into a heavily guarded military installation,” they said and added that NIA sleuths are likely to talk to some of the injured soldiers.

The central probe agency was roped in as this is the deadliest terror attack in recent history in which 18 soldiers were killed and 19 others injured.

Four fidayeen (suicide) militants, who carried out the pre-dawn attack, were also killed in the retaliatory action by the troops.However, identities of the slain militants have not been made public yet, though the Army maintains they were Pakistanis affiliated with Jaish-e-Mohammad terror outfit.
