NSA norm effected in routine exercise
Patna: The Bihar government has affected
the Section 3 of The National Security Act, 1980 (NSA) in the
state between January 1, 2012 and March 31, 2012.
In a notification dated January 3, the state
government directed that all district magistrates shall
exercise the powers conferred by Subsection 2 of the Section 3
of the Act within their jurisdiction for a further period of
three months from January 1 to March 31 this year.
This is, however, a routine exercise.
The provisions of the Act give authority to the state
government to exercise its power for three months to detain a
person and delegate the powers to district magistrates and
this system has been continuing for a long time, Home
Secretary Aamir Subhani clarified in a release.
"This section of the NSA continues to be effective in
the state in an interval of every three months.... There is
nothing new and uncommon in it," Subhani said.
