Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said India is facing narco-terror, which is understood as the involvement of drug traffickers in furthering illegal activities like terrorism, and it is important to stop this. He was speaking during his visit to Gujarat's National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU), where he had come to inaugurate the Centre of Excellence for Research and Analysis of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS).

"When the govt was formed for the second time under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it was decided that this Centre (Centre of Excellence for Research and Analysis of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) should be attached to Gujarat's Forensic Science University," news agency ANI quoted Shah as saying.

"I am confident that this university (Gujarat's Forensic Science University) will extend to other states and youth will get opportunity to contribute to forensic science. We don't need anyone. We are becoming self reliant in cyber defense and bariatric research," he added.

The Union Home Minister said the Modi government has decided that "we will not let narcotics enter our country and not let India become its pathway". "India is facing another danger: narco-terror. It is important to stop this," he further added.

At the NFSU, Shah will reportedly be spending about two hours, where he will see the Cyber Defence Centre and witness the functioning of the Indigenous Brain Electrical Oscillations Signature (BEOS) profiling system within the university campus.

Shah will also be present in a virtual training program related to Investigation of Crime Against Women at NFSU, which was established in 2009 when he was the home minister in Gujarat.

Meanwhile, Shah is on a three-day visit to his home state, and is taking part in a host of programmes in the capital city.
