Singh said the NDA government has been taking strong action on terrorism and results were showing on the ground.

"Everyday, 5-6 terrorists are neutralised in Jammu and Kashmir due to the sustained efforts of the Army, paramilitary forces and other security agencies. I compliment them," he said while inaugurating the new headquarters of the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

In his address at the function, director general of the NIA Sharad Kumar said since the inception of the organisation in 2009, a total 166 cases have been assigned to the NIA for investigation.

Kumar said these cases cover the entire spectrum of terrorism-related challenges relevant to India and have involved investigative efforts in 26 states and union territories.

Out of the 166 cases, 63 cases pertain to 'jihadi' terrorism, 25 to terrorist acts by North East insurgents, 41 to cases of terror financing and fake currency, 13 to cases involving Left-wing extremism while the remaining 24 cases relate to other miscellaneous terrorist acts or gangs, he said.

Kumar said the investigations conducted by the NIA have helped unearth an entire range of illegal activities involving terror funding to specific incidents of terror, including the killing of innocent persons.
