In the present paper, we have observed the possible superconductivity in polycrystalline NbP compound. This belongs to the so called Weyl Semimetal family where there is band crossing and linear dispersion point near the Fermi level. Critical temperature calculated from the resistivity measurement is found near 7.5 K. Superconductivity is also confirmed from the magnetization measurement. In the normal state, this sample shows significant magneto-resistance.
