The NIA probing the Narath armed training case will soon be filing the chargesheet of the case.

The NIA is speeding up the procedure to file the chargesheet, as the accused would complete judicial custody of 180 days under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act by next week and become eligible for default bail. According to officials in the NIA, they are carrying out procedures to file the chargesheet against the 21 arrested persons by Saturday or Monday.

“We have prepared the chargesheet and sent it to Directorate in New Delhi for its final approval. We hope to submit it before the NIA special court in Kochi as soon as the approval is received,” they said. If the NIA files the chargesheet at the right time, they would seek further investigation in the case. The NIA officials said they were short of time to complete the probe, as the police did not file the first chargesheet and the case was handed over to them just two months ago.

“In such circumstances, usually the police register the first chargesheet and the NIA seeks further probe from the court. A few more persons have to be traced and investigations into bank transactions and phone call details are still on,” the officials said.
