The NIA has offered a reward of up to Rs 1 lakh for providing information about the dead attackers. One of the dead attacker didn’t have a toe in both the feet and all of them were found circumcised, the agency said in a statement.

The NIA has sent these photographs to Pakistan through a court-approved request for assistance in probe, called letter rogatory. The agency has also sent their DNA report to Pakistan, if it needs to be matched with their family members.

The agency has approached Interpol for issuance of a black notice for identification of the bodies.

Two of the attackers have been identified as Nasir and Salim. Nasir was the one who had called his mother in Pakistan from the phone snatched from the jeweller friend of superintendent of police Salwinder Singh.
