Central agency NIA takes over Koregaon-Bhima case, irks Maha
Mumbai, Jan 25: The 2018 Koregaon-Bhima violence case has been taken over by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday. This came a day after the Maharashtra government held a review meeting with senior Pune police officers to take a call on pursuing the matter.
However, the Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh slammed the Union government and accused that it has transferred the probe of the case to the NIA without the state government's consent.
Meanwhile, the centre's decision has triggered another face-off with the Uddhav Thackeray government.
