“We have zero tolerance policy for any danger towards national security. We have strengthened laws. Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) has been amended. The NIA investigation ambit has been expanded to foreign nations. The NIA can now designate even an individual as a terrorist. Narco financing has also been brought under the ambit of NIA
