India to turn into a police state

New Delhi, July 16 (KMS): The Lower House of Indian parliament, Lok Sabha, has passed a bill further empowering the National Investigation Agency (NIA), notorious for detaining Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders and activists after implicating them in fake cases.

The Bill survived with 278 votes in favour and six against it. Congress MP Manish Tewari had argued that the Bill had the potential to turn India into a police state.

The NIA Amendment Bill, 2019, enables Chief Justices of High Courts including that of occupied Kashmir, to designate existing sessions courts as special NIA courts for dedicated trial of cases under the probe agency.
