Incidents of stone-pelting have reduced in Jammu and Kashmir due to the role of the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today.

"You have seen role of the NIA in Jammu and Kashmir, where incidents of stone pelting have come down. We have taken pledge for India's security and strict action is being taken for this. We will accept challenges and in the past three years incidents of naxalism, terrorism and extremism have seen a downward trend," he said.

Singh was speaking after inaugurating the office and residential complex of the NIA here.

Emphasising on "finishing terror funding sources", he said, "If we plug sources of fake currency and terror funding, it will be a big blow to terrorism. NIA is doing a great job here. Its name sends fear down the spine of those indulging in terror funding."

On the occasion, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath suggested holding of a meeting every six months between the NIA and state agencies. PTI
