New Delhi: Senior NIA officer G P Singh, probing militant funding cases in Jammu and Kashmir and in Northeastern region, was Monday given two years extension, according to an official order.
Singh, a 1991 batch IPS officer of Assam-Meghalaya cadre, is working as Inspector General (Intelligence) in the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has approved extension in his services for two years beyond November 4, 2018, the order issued by the Personnel Ministry said.
The NIA is looking into cases of militant financing and hate speeches in Jammu and Kashmir involving certain separatist leaders.
