HYDERABAD: The Central government on Wednesday told the Hyderabad High Court that it was examining the issue of having probe by the National Investigating Agency (NIA) into the incident of attack on YSR Congress president Jagan Mohan Reddy that took place in the Visakhapatnam airport premises on Oct 25 this year. It sought the court to grant some time to take a decision on it. 

Taking this submission, made by the assistant solicitor general K Lakshman on behalf of the Centre, into consideration, the bench directed the Centre not to disclose if it has taken a decision on the above, but to submit such a decision in a sealed cover before the court. Meanwhile, the ongoing investigation by the AP police could be continued, the bench noted.
