NEW DELHI — The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a plea seeking probe into alleged larger conspiracy behind the Pulwama terror attack.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna was hearing a PIL filed by lawyer Vineet Dhanda, seeking probe into alleged larger conspiracy in the attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.

The PIL submitted that nearly 370 kgs of RDX was used in the terror attack and it required a thorough probe.
