Union Cabinet Returns Gujarat’s Anti-terror Bill

Acting tough on the tough anti-terror bill passed by the Gujarat Assembly, the Union Cabinet has decided to return the bill to state government for necessary amendments in line with central law.

Speaking to media persons, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said that the Cabinet took decision to recommend to the President that the GUJCOCA (Gujarat Control of Organised Crime) Bill be returned to the state government for making three amendments.

One of the amendments suggested in the bill is the dropping of the provision that makes confession before a police officer admissible.

Chidambaram said the Cabinet felt that assent could not be given the state bill in its present form and changes should be made to bring it in line with the Unlawful Activities Prevention of Terrorism Act passed by Parliament last year.
