NIA team visits Sunjwan

While a high level team of National Investigation Agency visited Sunjwan Army Station on Sunday where operation against a group of militants is underway for second consecutive day, the probe agency said that they are waiting for government nod to take over case.

"One of our teams visited Sunjwan Jammu to take stock of situation today," NIA, Director General, Y C Modi told Greater Kashmir. "They were from our Jammu camp."

Modi said that they are waiting for orders from the Ministry of Home Affairs. "In case MHA gives nod to take over the case, we will," he added.  

NIA is a central agency established by the Indian Government to combat "terror in India" and it acts as the central counter terrorism law enforcement agency.  The probe agency has earlier probed several militant attacks that included Pathankote, Nagrota and Uri militant attacks.

A senior NIA official said that there are indications that case will be handed over to them.  "We are investigating Pathankot Indian Air Force base and other attacks. We will try to find out similarities in the modus operandi of the militants while carrying out such attacks," the official said, adding that on Sunday their teams at Sujwan gathered the information how such big attack took place.
