New Delhi, Sep 28 (UNI) Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan has said tough anti-terror law is needed to check the increasing incidents of terrorism in the country.

The CJI, however, pleaded that a mechanism must be evolved to check the misuse of such draconian law. He also pleaded for setting up of a Federal Agency which can be entrusted with the cases of terrorist violence and violation of Human Rights.

Justice Balakrishnan, who yesterday inaugurated an exhibition on the trial of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev in Lahore Conspiracy case in which all three were awarded death sentence, said, '' we are known as one of the best protectors of Human Rights in the world.'' The exhibition will be on for a week in the Supreme Court museum.
