The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is all set to hand over the probe of the terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), sources said on Monday. "The MHA is likely to issue a notification shortly," an MHA source told IANS.
The Jammu and Kashmir police have registered a case. A day after the February 14 terror attack in which more than 40 CRPF troopers were killed, an NIA team along with the explosive and forensic experts had collected the materials required for the probe. It was the worst-ever terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir since militancy erupted in 1989. The suicide attack on the Srinagar-Jammu highway was claimed by Jaish-e-Mohammad.
