In a major push to its fight against terrorism, the Parliament passed the National Investigation Agency (Amendment) Bill, 2019, with the Rajya Sabha approving it unanimously on Wednesday after Home Minister Amit Shah’s assurance that government would never allow its misuse.

The Bill aims at enhancing the jurisdiction of NIA to investigate scheduled offences committed outside India targeting Indians as well as Indian assets abroad.

“I want to assure the House that Prime Minister Narendra Modi government will not allow any misuse of this law,” Shah said, urging the members to pass the Bill unanimously so that a strong message be sent to terrorists and the world  that India is united in its fight against terrorism.  Read More
