The Ministry of Home Affairs on Tuesday, 16 July, said infiltration in Jammu and Kashmir has reduced by 43 percent in the first half of 2019 compared to the same period last year in Lok Sabha.

Seeking to give more teeth to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Lok Sabha on Monday, 15 July, passed a Bill to allow it to probe terrorist acts against Indians and Indian interests abroad.

During the discussion, Home Minister Amit Shah said that the Narendra Modi government will "never misuse the NIA law." He said that the government plans to use it to finish off terrorism irrespective of the religion of the guilty.

The Centre on Monday, 15 July, asserted that a Bill to broaden the NIA’s investigating powers is part of its policy of 'zero tolerance against terrorism' and is in the national interest.
