According to an annual report released by the MHA, the number of deaths has decreased by more than 75 per cent and incidents due to LWE have also come down by almost 63 per cent in the last eight years.
A significant decline was seen in the incidents of LWE violence in the last five years. The spread of the LWE extremist also shrank geographically, the report stated. (ANI)
