In his address at the 7th foundation day of the NIA, Vohra said that the Union Home Ministry should take urgent steps to ensure that NIA's legal framework is suitably modified to enable effective investigations in terror cases.
"The existing Schedule to the NIA Act also requires to be reviewed for enlarging the list of offences to particularly cover those under the Ranbir Penal Code, Arms Act, NDPS Act, Explosive Substances Act and Cyber Terrorism offences, among others," he said.
Inclusion of Ranbir Penal Code, which was a substitute of Indian Penal Code in Jammu and Kashmir, means that National Investigation Agency (NIA) can take over any case registered under anti-terror law Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
