The Global Terrorism Index has published a report stating that 32,658 people were killed by terrorists around the world in 2014 – an 80 per cent increase from the previous year.

“Recent incidents in India and the world have starkly illustrated that terrorism has come to fatally affect people. Its tentacles seem to be spreading more than ever bef”re,” said Shruti Bedi.

A senior assistant professor of constitutional law at the University Institute of Legal Studies, Panjab University, Bedi is an expert on the legal aspects of terrorism. She has now authored a book, Indian Counter Terrorism Laws, to be formally launched soon.

Unlike most books on terrorism, this book as Justice AK Sikri, a sitting judge in the Supreme Court notes in the introduction to the book, specifically explores the principal anti-terror statutes in India enacted by the Parliament to legally prevent and punish terrorists”

“There is no denying that terrorism is a burning issue and while there are a lot of opinions and articles on the subject, I found there is no comprehensive literature on the Indian counter-terrorism laws,” said Bedi, who has previously authored, Terrorism: Our World and Law.

Bedi said her new book is not just a reference book for law students and scholars of counter-terrorism laws and strategies, but also an useful resource for academicians, judges, lawyers, police officers, legislators and members of special bodies involved in tackling the terror menace.

“Apart from the complete interpretation of the provisions of the Indian counter-terrorism legislation, I have also presented an elaborate and exhaustive judicial interpretation of the cases under Indian statutes and detailed the progress of the counter-terror regime in India from the British era to date,” Bedi said.
