The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will probe a case in which a senior Jammu and Kashmir police officer, Dasvindra Singh was arrested while ferrying three terrorists out of the valley, an official spokesman said on Saturday.
The anti-terror agency is likely to bring the JK cops to Delhi for interrogations.
Davinder Singh, posted as the deputy superintendent of police, was arrested last weekend along with Naveed Babu, self-styled district commander of banned Hizbul Mujahideen, a new recruit Atif and an advocate Irfan Mir.
The four were caught with arms and ammunition while they were traveling in a car near Qazigund on the national highway in south Kashmir.
After receiving orders from the Union Home Ministry, the NIA has re-registered this case and started the investigation, the spokesman said.

On the other hand, Shiv Sena today questioned the role of police in the Kashmir valley.
Cross border infiltration is ongoing in Kashmir. But the police machinery is being used to help the terrorists in Kashmir to safely cross the border to Pakistan and a president medal awardee DSP was arrested for doing so. It seems, in Kashmir, the govt is using the police for some other purposes, what will the country's Home Ministry say if somebody has doubt in connection with the Pulwama attacks, Shiv Sena said in its mouthpiece Saamna.
