An NIA official said that they are yet to receive any report from the forensic laboratory. We are still ascertaining the case and have not concluded anything as yet, the officer also informed OneIndia.

According to the original version, there were six terrorists. While four terrorists had been killed and their bodies too had been found.

In the second encounter that lasted 30 hours, it was said that two more terrorists had died. The bodies had not been recovered and it was said that only the charred remains had been found.

The NIA had managed to recover four AK-47 rifles and three pistols the weapons of the other two terrorists has not been recovered.

The question is whether the rifles had melted due to the fire. Highly unlikely since an iron cot was found intact.
