The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has been asked to probe the attack on the Langate camp of the Army’s 30 Rashtriya Rifles battalion, where three militants were killed when they tried to enter the camp on Thursday. A team of NIA officials visited Langate and Handwara areas on Friday to take over the case.
The agency is already investigating the Uri attack in which 19 armymen were killed.
A senior police officer confirmed to the The Indian Express that NIA will be probing the case.

Sources said that the NIA officials will inspect all the items recovered from the militants. These included three AK rifles, three under-barrel grenade launchers, magazines, four walkie-talkie sets, medicines and cash.
Officials said that the agency is expected to probe the case on the lines of the Uri attack case as foreign militants were involved.
Meanwhile, the Army Friday conducted search operations in some villages in Langate, but nobody was arrested. The Army fears that one of the militants managed to escape during the encounter, taking advantage of the darkness.
The Army has also launched a search operation in the forests of Nowgam close to the LoC. The Army claimed on Thursday that it foiled two infiltration bids in the area and killed four militants. Army officials said more militants could be hiding in the area.
