Stone-pelting cases decline in Kashmir due to NIA, says Rajnath Singh

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said that in Jammu and Kashmir stone pelting has declined due to the raids carried out by National Investigation Agency (NIA), reports said.

Singh said that the issue of stone pelting was growing day by day and with NIA’s efficient performance a reduction has been witnessed in such matters.

“Fake currency plays vital role in fuelling naxalism and terrorism. The NIA is curbing this and is investigating 165 such cases of terror funding in the entire country. If we are able to destroy the main source of terror funding then I am sure it will lead to an end of terrorism,” he added.

He added that the way NIA probes the matter is tremendous as the conviction rate goes up to 95 %.

“There is no investigating agency in India whose conviction rate is that high. With this residential complex, we will get to see improvement in the functioning of NIA. For a qualitative outcome from an organization there has to be a quality infrastructure as well,” he asserted.

Union Minister along with Chief Minister of Uttar Pardesh Yogi Adityanath today inaugurated the residential complex for the sleuths of NIA in Lucknow.
