Amid reports that the case of the Rajouri terror attack will be handed over to some central agencies for further investigation, a special team of the National Investigation Agency on Tuesday reached the Dangri village of Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir where terrorists killed six civilians in two back-to-back attacks.

Although no official statement has been issued to hand over this case to the NIA, sleuths of the central agency on Tuesday went to three houses where terrorists selectively killed four civilians after confirming their identities through Aadhaar cards.

Reports said that local police officers also accompanied members of the NIA who collected some samples from the spot and also interacted with some of the villagers who witnessed the terror attack on Sunday evening.
