On Board Air Force One, Sep 23 (UNI) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said he has not reached a conclusion on whether a new anti-terror law is required in the country and added that he has asked a group of officials to study the Administrative Reforms Commission report on the issue.

Talking to reporters on board Air Force One en route to the US from Frankfurt where he had made an overnight stopover on the way from New Delhi, Dr Singh said law and order is a state subject.

He declined to elaborate saying he would not go into Centre-state relations. The Centre has a certain responsibility whether it needs a law, he added.

On elections in Jammu and Kashmir, Dr Singh said polls would be held when the Election Commission decides.
