Congress Seeks NIA Chief’s Re­moval

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

New Delhi: The Congress has ac­cused the NDA govern­ment of “un­der­min­ing” the in­de­pen­dence of Na­tional In­ves­ti­ga­tion Agency (NIA) and us­ing it “for par­ti­san pol­i­tics”. The party has sought im­me­di­ate re­moval of the NIA chief who is on ex­ten­sion and urged the apex court to mon­i­tor all those NIA probes into ter­rors cases where the ac­cused are linked to Sangh out­fits. “Since the Modi govern­ment came to power, we have seen wit­nesses turn hos­tile be it in the Samjhauta Ex­press, Ajmer or Male­gaon Blast. But, we are see­ing how bla­tantly the Modi govt is un­der­min­ing the NIA and us­ing it for par­ti­san pol­i­tics. There­fore, the Congress de­mands all cases of NIA be placed be­fore Supreme Court, ” AICC spokesper­son Ajoy Kumar said. —OPB
