The Home Ministry is likely to hand over the probe into today’s attack on a CRPF camp in Jammu and Kashmir to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).  A senior official said since the strike in Bandipora district of J-K was a terror attack, the investigation may be given to the NIA. Terrorists belonging to the Lashkar-e-Taiba were suspected to be involved in the incident as the modus operandi of the attack was similar to those adopted by the Pakistan- based terrorist group, the official said.
