The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Sunday said that it has assumed control over the case identified with the recuperation of 7.1 kg “regular uranium” worth Rs 21.30 crore in Mumbai.
The counter dread organization assumed control over the case on Saturday from Mumbai Police on the Union Home Ministry’s structure and re-enlisted the case under segment 24(1)(a) of the Atomic Energy Act, 1962. The principal case was held up at Mumbai’s Kalachowki Police Station on May 5.
“The case identifies with the capture of 7.1 kg of ‘Characteristic Uranium’ having a worth of about Rs 21.30 crore from illicit ownership of blamed people Jigar Jayesh Pandya and Abu Tahir Afzal Choudhary,” the NIA said.
“As per the enlistment of the case, imperative activities according to law for the quick examination of the case have been started.”
The NIA on Thursday gathered the FIR and other data about the seizure from Maharashtra’s Anti-Terrorism Squad which captured Pandya and Choudhary and held onto the uranium from their ownership on May 5.
Thane inhabitant Panday, 27, and Mankhurd (Mumbai) scrap seller Choudhary, 31, were delivered under the watchful eye of a unique NIA court which allowed police authority for 12 days.
Not long after the recuperation of uranium like-substance from Pandya, the Maharashtra ATS previously sent it for logical examination to the Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC). The report was gotten on May 5.
