Jammu, Aug 30 (UNI) A high-level team of National Security Group (NSG) would be arriving here to investigate the Chinore encounter in which at least nine people including three militants were killed on August 27, official sources here said.

''The NSG team will scrutinise the encounter site and also the route used by the fidayeens right from Kanachak from where the militants had intruded into Indian side, up to Chinore, where they kept hostage seven people including four children for around 19-hours,'' a senior police officer told UNI.

The squad, however, would investigate the entire incident and also find out the shortcomings, if any, on part of the security agencies en route Kanhachak to Chinore, official sources said.
