National Investigation Agency, since its inception in 2009 has secured 28 convictions out of 30 cases decided so far and boasts of 95 percent conviction rate, first for any agency in India said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday.

Speaking at the inauguration of NIA's new office and residential complex in Lucknow, the Union Home Minister said, "You have seen the role of the NIA in Jammu and Kashmir, where incidents of stone-throwing have come down. After the action taken by the agency recently, stone pelting incidents have come down in the Kashmir Valley", the Home Minister was quoted as saying by ANI. "We will accept challenges and in the past three years, incident of naxalism, terrorism and extremism have seen a downward trend", he said. "In the past three years, extremism has come down by 75% in the North East, and Naxalism has come down by 35% to 40%". "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. NIA is doing a great job here. The NIA is curbing this and is investigating 165 such cases of terror funding in the entire country.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was also present in the program. He said that a high level meeting must be organised between state organisations and NIA on every six months for exchange of information and coordination. "There should be better coordination among different agencies", he said. "India is a sensitive place for terrorism as some of our neighbours have made terrorism part of their policy and it affects us".

"We will strengthen the ATS in the future by equipping it with modern techniques", he added. Available on Android and IOS.
