Earlier this week India marked the 11th anniversary of the horrific 26th November terror attack in Mumbai …
It was one of the lethal incidents of terrorism in Indian history… One that inflicted a deep wound on India’s financial capital.
However there was one significant fallout of this incident … The nation resolved that it needed new measures to combat this enemy …
One of the decisions that followed was to establish the National Investigation Agency to investigate and unmask terrorism and all its places of origin.
As the central counter terrorism law enforcement agency in India, NIA has investigated about 250 cases since its formation.
After submission of charge sheets, 37 cases have been finally or partially decided in trial.
Of these, 35 cases have ended in conviction, giving NIA a conviction percentage of 91.3%.
Recently, the NIA also hosted the first counter-terrorism exercise for the “Quad” countries — India, the US, Japan and Australia.
The counter-terrorism exercise was the first such engagement on cooperation in the region.
On the show today, we tell you all about the National Investigation Agency – how and when it came into being, its vision and mission and its contribution to national security….
