NIA gets more teeth
7/17/2019 12:03:51 AM
The Lok Sabha has given more teeth to National Investigating Agency by passing the NIA amendment Bill, 2019. Now the NIA can also probe terror cases targeting Indians and Indian assets abroad. The amendments will also allow the NIA to probe cybercrimes and cases of human trafficking.
The NIA was set up in 2009 in the wake of the Mumbai terror attack that had claimed 166 lives. Since 2017, the Union Home Ministry has been pushing for giving more power to the NIA to meet fresh challenges.
The NIA became more vibrant after Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government took over the reins of the country in 2014. Since that day the NIA has not looked back and has cracked whip on the terrorists and their supporters across the country.
The NIA's action in Kashmir has led to secessionist elements hiding in rat holes. All the Pak stooges in Kashmir, except two, are cooling their heels in Tihar Jail and it looks impossible that they would be released in near future.
The NIA has proved out to be the most potent weapon against the terrorists and their sympathizers in Kashmir. Within a short span of time the NIA has emerged as the most competent investigating agencies in the country.
If the NIA continues to nail the terror supporters the way it has been going on it won't be an overstatement that the Agency would wipe out terrorists and their supporters from the country within next few years.
It's unfortunate that some political parties have opposed more teeth to NIA and are expressing concern over the possibility about it getting misused by the government.
Till date the NIA has acted independently and has set highest standards of investigations. The Agency comprises of the officers who are known for their integrity and honesty.
The NIA (Amendment) Bill, 2019 empowers the agency to investigate and prosecute offences listed in a schedule (scheduled offences). Further, it allows for creation of Special Courts for the trial of such scheduled offences.
Once the amendments are incorporated in the law, NIA officials would have the same investigation powers in terror cases as other police officers across India.
Additionally, they will have the power to investigate scheduled offences committed outside India subject to international treaties and domestic laws of other countries. This will help the NIA to act against the terrorists who are operating from other countries and are bleeding India in one or other way. More powers to NIA is a welcome step and we need to appreciate this move.
