New Delhi, Jan 20: Pointing out the need to keep politics at bay while dealing with cases of terrorism, an interesting point was made during the celebrations of the 7th National Investigation Agency day. The suggestion to keep politics aside while dealing with cases of terror was made by N N Vohra, Governor of Jammu & Kashmir.
During his address he called upon the political fraternity to dispel all political differences over counter-terror investigations and to be readily forthcoming in cooperation with the Central Agencies in such sensitive crimes.
He also made a suggestion for the constitution of an altogether separate Ministry for national security and urged the Union Home Minister, for constitution of a National Security Administrative Service, comprising of professionals from all the discipline of science, medicine, finance, law enforcement, defence, technology, etc, to combat the complex terror crimes and conspiracies.
Need for professional agencies:
Vohra outlined the deficit in the adequate numbers and training of the State Police Forces in dealing with highly sophisticated and precision terror strikes that the country has witnessed in the past 15 years.
He dwelt at length on the need for professional Agencies like NIA in countering the emerging threats and the need for expanding the ambit of investigations by the NIA.
He called upon the political fraternity to dispel all political differences over counter terror investigations and to be readily forthcoming in cooperation with the Central Agencies in such sensitive crimes.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated the team NIA for achieving a high rate of success (95%) in investigation and 92% in conviction of cases entrusted to it, thereby earning the trust of masses and asserted the resolve of all law enforcement agencies of the country in upholding the Sovereignty and Integrity of the nation.
He welcomed the suggestions made by Vohra. He particularly made special note of the suggestion regarding constitution of a dedicated National Security Administrative Service.
