Fake currency notes act as oxygen to terrorism: Rajnath Singh

The ongoing probe by the National Investigation Agency into a terror funding case has dealt a severe blow to the activities and operations of subversive elements as well as separatist leaders in the Kashmir Valley.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh also called "militancy" a "curse for the civilized society", and said the NIA will soon choke the foreign fund trail to the "terrorists operating in the country".

India's federal anti-terrorism probe agency, the National Investigation Agency, set up in 2009 in the aftermath of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, has a new headquarters in New Delhi. He hailed the NIA's role in curbing the menace of fake currency which he said acted as oxygen for terrorism.

The minister said terrorism was a major threat to many countries today but noted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the topic on the world stage and "succeeded" in bringing most countries on board the fight against terror.
