Karnataka mulls over independent intelligence wing

HUBLI: The state government is planning to set up an independent intelligence Wing. Disclosing this to reporters here on Monday, home minister V S Acharya said the state has always felt the need for an independent and efficient intelligence wing and hence is planning to establish one on the lines of Gujarat.

Efforts are being made in this regard, he said, adding that they are not working on this front by setting a timeframe.

Acharya claimed that the BJP government has progressed in combating Naxal attacks ever since it came to power in the state. He said the term of the special aid extended by the Centre when L K Advani was home minister has expired. The Centre has been asked to extend it for five more years.
