However they have no information about his home being searched by the central agencies he confirmed. The district police were also caught unaware of the search and raid conducted by the NIA.

The state police confirmed that Negi who was in the NIA was repatriated to the parent cadre.
Senior officials of Kinnuar district told on Saturday that NIA team along with jawan of Himachal Pradesh Police searched the ancestral village house of Negi at Dunni village under Kalpa subdivision however state police did not intervene in the NIA investigation and could not reveal too much on the issue. The SP Kinnuar was currently on leave and the action of NIA happened in the presence of SP.
State Principal Secretary home Rajneesh stated that he was not apprised about the NIA action and Police headquarters may be informed about it.
The central agencies got input from the headquarters about the alleged action but they could not reveal much about the issue.
