The Union home ministry on Monday handed over to the National Investigation Agency the probe into a militant attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Reasi district, reported PTI.

On June 9, nine persons were killed and 41 were injured when a bus fell into a gorge after being attacked by militants.

The bus was travelling from Shiv Khori, a shrine dedicated to the Hindu deity Shiva, to the town of Katra.

The Jammu and Kashmir Police handed over the case into the attack to the National Investigation Agency on June 15, according to The Times of India.

This came a day after Union home minister Amit Shah reviewed the security situation in the Union territory. Amid increased militant attacks, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also chaired a review meeting on Thursday.

Jammu and Kashmir saw three militant attacks in the last week.
