The anti-terror agency's revelation comes within two weeks of its investigation into the killing of Gosain, 60, who was fired at by two bike-borne assailants on October 17 near his house while returning after attending a morning RSS drill. He died on the spot. The NIA, which took over the case following a November 16 order issued by the Union Home Ministry, said the questioning of two arrested accused persons -- Ramandeep Singh and Hardeep Singh -- by Punjab Police and further investigation in the case revealed the conspiracy. The NIA had taken custody of Ramandeep and Hardeep from Punjab Police on November 22.
