NEW DELHI:The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken took over the probe into Thursday’s attack on the Rashtriya Rifles camp in Langate in which three militants were killed, media reports said on Friday.

“We have formally registered an FIR in connection with the attack and taken over probe. A team of NIA officials has reached the RR 30 camp as well,” said a senior NIA official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The investigative agency was involved since the arms and supplies recovered by the army from the dead militants had Pakistani markings, much like those carried by the Uri attackers who killed 19 soldiers on September 18.
