New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken over the probe of the Manipur ambush case from the state police which claimed the lives of an Assam Rifles Colonel, his wife and child as well as four of his colleagues.

One NIA Spokesperson confirmed to ANI that it has taken over the Manipur Ambush case and started the probe since last Saturday (November 27).

ANI wrote about the development on November 26 mentioning that the “MHA will issue an order to the NIA any time this week or next” allowing it to take over the case.
