Biren Singh, who also hold charge of the Home Department, said that in view of the fact that it concerns the securirty of the state and the nation as well, the cabinet on Saturday decided to hand over the case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). "The government has written an official letter to the NIA in this connection. It will also be examined whether there is a political conspiracy in it," he said. 

The Chief Minister said that these missing pistols and magazines are part of the 575 pistols which were purchased by the government on October 9, 2014. Commanding officer P. Panjit came to know of the missing pistols a few days ago and police have registered an FIR in this connection.
