NIA To Take Over Probe Into Attack On Indian High Commission In London
The Ministry of Home Affairs has ordered the Delhi Police Special Cell to hand over the investigation of the attack on the Indian High Commission in London last month to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
It has also directed the NIA to file a fresh case.
The move comes after the preliminary investigation had found links to Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
During the incident, a group of protesters, holding pro-Khalistan flags and shouting pro-Khalistan slogans, tried to bring down the Indian flag at the High Commission. The flag was saved by a security officer present.
Some of them also held a poster of fugitive Amritpal Singh, a Khalistani sympathizer.
