New Delhi [India], Sept. 20 (ANI): The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday filed an FIR in the Uri terror strike case and a six-member team will soon visit the site of the attack to collect the evidence in the matter.

According to sources, NIA will collect the blood samples and finger prints of the four killed terrorists in Uri.

The Army is set to handover all items recovered from the killed terrorists including weapons, navigation maps to the NIA for further investigation.

The NIA will also send the GPS and icon satellite set to the United States for forensic investigation to find out what route the terrorists chose and when and how they entered Indian territory.

After giving an assurance of going after the perpetrators of the deadly Uri attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday gave the green signal to diplomatically isolate Pakistan at every international grouping.
