West Bengal: The Centre on Thursday transferred the Bardhaman blast case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), a day after the West Bengal police invoked the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act against the four arrested accused. A week after the incident, the Centre invoked Section 6 (5) of the NIA Act to transfer the case to the agency. The provision empowers the Centre to suo motu transfer cases involving laws specified in the Offences Schedule of the Act. The agency would also move the court seeking custody of the arrested persons for a fresh round of questioning.
