The National Investigative Agency (NIA) has registered a case in the Uri attack and will be visiting the army base near the Line of Control in Kashmir to collect evidence, officials said on Tuesday.

According to reports, a six member NIA team is investigating the attack and will collect DNA samples of the four Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists who carried out the dastardly attack on Sunday morning that left 18 Indian soldiers dead.

All the four militants were later gunned down by security forces.

Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh on Sunday had said that terror attack was orchestrated by "foreign terrorists" belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammad outfit.

In 2016, there have been 17 infiltration bids eliminated by the Indian Army along the Line of Control. Of a total of 110 terrorists eliminated in the state, 31 have been killed while they were attempting to cross the Line of Control.

Meanwhile, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday chaired a review meet two days after the terror attack that was attended by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Home Secretary Rajeev Mehrishi.
