Wont let down govt in new job: NIA DG-designate tells Rajnath

"I compliment them", he said while inaugurating the new headquarters of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) here. "The NIA is playing an effective role in curbing the flow of FICN and terror funding", Singh wrote on Twitter.

India would be one among the top three economies in the world by 2030, said Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Addressing the young officers/jawans, Singh said that terrorism was a major threat in many countries today but Prime Minister Narendra Modi had taken up the topic on the world stage and "succeeded" in bringing most countries on board the issue. Among those arrested include Altaf Shah alias Fantoosh, the son-in-law of supreme Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.


Singh said investigating "militant activities" is a tough job.

The process to sanitise the Kashmir Valley of terror elements has been catalysed, the Home Minister said, adding, "Everyday, the forces are successful in killing 5-6 terrorists". In 95 per cent of its cases, the accused get conviction, he said.

He said: "High-quality fake currencies act as oxygen for terrorism".


The home minister said terrorism was a major hurdle in the country's development and the Centre had initiated several measures to tackle the menace, including raising it at various worldwide forums.

Lauding the role of the NIA, he said the agency had established its credibility and impartiality in the last eight years through professional and scientific investigation. He lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi for bringing the global community on board on the issue of terrorism. These cases cover the entire spectrum of terrorism related challenges relevant to India and have involved investigative efforts in 26 States and UTs.

The maximum number of cases, 63, pertained to "jihadi terrorism", followed by 41 cases of terror financing, 25 of insurgency in the Northeastern states, and 13 incidents of Left-wing extremism, Kumar said.
