Srinagar : A day after 18 soldiers were killed in one of the deadliest terror attacks on a strategic army location near the LoC in Kashmir, a National Investigation Agency (NIA) team on Monday visited the spot to initiate a probe.

Sources told DH that a six-member NIA team led by a inspector general (IG) level officer reached Uri in Baramulla, 102 km from here, after getting clearance from the Union Home Ministry to take over the investigation into the terror attack.

“On their arrival in Uri, the NIA team had a brief discussion with senior Army officers in the area. The team will look into all aspects of how the four heavily armed terrorists managed to sneak into a heavily guarded military installation,” they said and added that NIA sleuths are likely to talk to some of the injured soldiers.

Station House Officer (SHO) of Uri police station Ghulam Mohammad confirmed that the NIA team has arrived in the town. “I don’t have details, but I can say they are here,” he told DH over phone. The central probe agency was roped in as this is the deadliest terror attack in recent history in which 18 soldiers were killed and 19 others injured.

Four fidayeen (suicide) militants, who carried out the pre-dawn attack, were also killed in the retaliatory action by the troops.However, identities of the slain militants have not been made public yet, though the Army maintains they were Pakistanis affiliated with Jaish-e-Mohammad terror outfit.

Put farm laws on hold or we will do it, Chief Justice Bobde tells government

New Delhi, 11 Jan : A Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice S. A. Bobde on Monday toughened its stand on the farm laws and said the court has made up its mind to stay the implementation of the three farm laws, which have led to the protest by thousands of farmers at various Delhi borders.

“What is going on? States are rebelling against your laws”, a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde told the Centre. “We are extremely disappointed with the negotiation process,” he said.

“If the Centre does not want to stay the implementation of farm laws, we will put a stay on it,” the CJI added.

“We don’t want to make any stray observations on your negotiations but we are extremely disappointed with the process,” said the bench, also comprising Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.

The apex court, which was hearing a clutch of pleas challenging the new farm laws as well as the ones raising issues related to the ongoing agitation at Delhi borders, said it is not talking about the repeal of these farm laws at the moment.

“This is a very delicate situation,” the bench said, adding, “There is not a single petition before us which says that these farm laws are beneficial.”

“We will stay implementation of laws,” the CJI said. “You can carry on the protest. But the question is whether the protest should be held at the same site,” he added.

“Some people have committed suicide, old people and women are a part of the agitation. What is happening?” he said.
