by admin

NEW DELHI: As part of a pro-active effort to assess all possible threats to national security and eliminate the possibility of lapses due to lack of timely sharing of information among central and state agencies or failure to properly analyse intelligence, home minister Amit Shah on Monday chaired a meeting with the country’s security brass to review the prevailing threat scenario in the country as well as the emerging security challenges.
The meeting was attended by the heads of central intelligence agencies, central armed police forces, intelligence wings of the armed forces, and revenue and financial intelligence agencies. The police chiefs of all states and UTs joined the meeting via video-conferencing.
Shah highlighted continuing threats of terror, particularly from global terror groups; terror financing; narco-terrorism; organised crime-terror nexus; illicit use of cyber space and movement of foreign terrorists among the major security challenges before the country and stressed on the need for better coordination and synergy among the central and state security agencies to counter the challenges.
Senior officers indicated that the purpose behind Monday’s meeting was to have a regular interaction and sharing of information among the heads of central and state agencies engaged in handling various aspects of national security, as desired by the home minister. Institutionalisation of such discussions for assessing threats to national security and using the forum to share inputs is expected to enhance the quality of response of law enforcement, an officer said.
