A team of National Investigation Agency arrived in Kashmir on Wednesday and completed documentation for taking custody of four persons, accused of helping Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militant Naveed Jatt alias Abu Hanzalla escape from SMHS hospital.

Naveed was arrested in 2014 from south Kashmir's Kulgam district. He escaped from the police custody on February 6, 2018, after militants attacked the police party accompanying him to the hospital, where he was brought for medical check-up from Central Jail, Srinagar.

“NIA team has completed the formalities and applied for change of custody of four people who are presently in J&K Police custody,” senior superintendent of police, Srinagar, Imtiyaz Ismail Parry, told Greater Kashmir. “The NIA approached a local court here to take custody and the order has been issued in this regard.”

Jatt was among six prisoners who was taken to the hospital for a routine medical check-up but managed to flee from the police custody after killing two policemen.
