The Supreme Court has consented to inspect an inquiry whether the offense of gold pirating can be named as fear based oppressor movement, ie as a terrorist activity under arrangements of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). 

A seat of Justices R F Nariman and B R Gavai gave notice to Center and National Investigating Agency (NIA) on a request against a request for Rajasthan High Court, which had declined to subdue the FIR enlisted by the test organization under the offenses of UAPA


The contendor, Mohammad Aslam, who was found sneaking over 1.5kg gold at Jaipur International Airport has looked for stay of capture, examination and procedures in the FIR held up by the NIA under arrangements of UAPA

The supplication documented by advocate Aditya Jain said that after the case was moved to NIA, it enlisted a FIR on the ground that the sneaking of the gold by Aslam was finished with the expectation to compromise the financial security and harming the money related dependability of India. 

Aslam fought that the subsequent FIR enrolled by NIA after the first stopped by the custom authorities, was self-assertive and no by all appearances instance of monetary illegal intimidation was made out against him as affirmed.

Aslam guaranteed an individual distinguished as Lal Mohammad impacted him to convey some measure of gold to an obscure individual in Jaipur and in lieu of that he vowed to book a return pass to Jaipur and offered Rs. 10,000. 

The candidate guaranteed he was caught by Lal Mohammad. 

He contended that there isn't anything on record to show gold pirating is associated with financing psychological oppression. Aslam demanded he had no association with any fear monger or any radical gathering.


Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act is an Indian law focused on avoidance of unlawful exercises relationship in India. Its fundamental goal was to make powers accessible for managing exercises coordinated against the respectability and sway of India. 

The National Integration Council designated a Committee on National Integration and Regionalisation to investigate, the part of placing sensible limitations in light of a legitimate concern for the power and honesty of India. The plan of the NIC restricted itself to communalism, casteism and regionalism and not psychological warfare. 

As per the acknowledgment of proposals of the Committee, the Constitution (Sixteenth Amendment) Act, 1963 was instituted to force, by law, sensible limitations in light of a legitimate concern for the sway and trustworthiness of India. 
In any case, the arrangements of the UAPA Act contradicts the prerequisites of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
