The three officers were transferred to ensure that a fair probe is conducted. An inquiry into the allegations is being conducted by an officer of the Deputy Inspector General rank.

The allegation against the officials is that they had sought a bribe to go easy on a businessman involved in the case. The NIA had searched the premises of a Delhi based businessman, who was allegedly handling slash funds that were sent from Pakistan via Dubai.

The NIA had found that these funds were being pumped in with the sole intention of causing unrest in the Valley. Several separatists and recently a politician Rashid Engineer were arrested in this case.
