The National Investigation Agency (NIA) of India, the premier central agency established by the Indian Government to combat terror has now taken over the actionable task of building a strong case against the recent terror attack in Uri sponsored by Pakistan.

The NIA is going to hand over certain materials collected from the site of the attack to the United States (US) for in-depth investigation in order to build a case against suspected terror groups Jaish-e-Mohammad which is the prime suspect behind this dastardly act.

So far the items that have been recovered from the spot of the tragic attack include AK-47 rifles, four Under Barrel Grenade Launchers (UBGL), 39 UBGL grenades, five hand grenades, two radio sets, two Global Positioning Sets (GPS), two map sheets, two matrix sheets, one mobile phone and a large number of food and medicine packets having Pakistani markings. Matrix sheets are used as guidance points during travel.

Latest updates reveal that an expert team of NIA will reach Uri soon to collect the DNA samples and other collectibles. As per reports from government sources India will leave no stones unturned to isolate Pakistan in the international forum and this may be one of a number of other steps to be taken in a series.
