Radical Sikh outfit opposes NCTC

Amritsar: Opposing the setting up of National Counter-Terrorism Centre (NCTC), radical Sikh outfit Dal Khalsa today said any such step was fraught with danger.

In a letter to Home Minister P Chidambaram, the outfit voiced its opposition to seeting up NCTC "without prior consultations with states or representatives of ethnic minority communitiesor rights organisations".

"Instead of going for the creation of a new anti-terror super body, UPA government should evolve methodologies for peaceful conflict resolution thereby removing the very cause for violence as well as making the existing security and intelligence agencies accountable to people and Parliament," party`s political secretary Kanwar Pal Singh said.
