Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary said this in Lok Sabha on Tuesday.
Replying a written question, he said the undertrial fugitives who escaped from Khandwa jail in Madhya Pradesh are suspected to be involved in various terrorist acts in different parts of the country.

However, their actual involvement or otherwise can only be determined after a thorough investigation into such incidents.

In this regard, the Home Ministry has requested the state governments concerned to send their reports on these incidents in accordance with section 6(2) of the National Investigation Agency Act-2008, along with their views for transfer of these cases to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Chaudhary said the governments of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have recommended transfer of the case of IED explosion at Bijnor and IED explosion at Roorkee, respectively, to NIA.

"These cases have been handed over to NIA for further investigation," he said.
