IMPHAL: The November 13 terror attack in Manipur, in which an Assam Rifles Colonel, his wife, son and four jawans of the paramilitary force were killed, would be handed over for probe to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Chief Minister N Biren Singh said here on Thursday.

While delivering his speech at the 12th annual award presentation ceremony of the Manipur State Award for Literature-2020, the Chief Minister said that the case would be handed over to the NIA to reveal the actual details and identity of the perpetrators of the violence.

According to a senior Home Department official in the state, Saturday's terror attack in Churachandpur district bordering Myanmar has many dimensions, hence only a central agency probe can unearth the genuine details.

"The issues related to the attack are not just limited to the northeastern region, but have possible international links and multiple dimensions,' the official told IANS on condition of anonymity. (IANS)
