Union Home Secretary to hold high-level meeting on security situation in J&K today

New Delhi : Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla will chair a high-level meeting on security situation in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.

According to sources, Intelligence Bureau Director Arvind Kumar, J&K DGP Dilbagh Singh, CRPF Director General Kuldeep Singh and officials of the Home Ministry are likely to attend the meeting.

The overall situation of the Union Territory will be reviewed in the meeting. The meeting is being called against backdrop of drone attack at the Air Force (IAF) station in Jammu last month.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also chaired a high-level meeting on June 29 following the drone attack on June 27 wherein Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Home Minister Amit Shah apprised him of the situation.

Last week, the Centre handed over the drone attack probe to the National Investigation Agency, which appears to be the handiwork of Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba.

According to sources, the evaluation of the situation becomes imperative in the wake of political development in the Union Territory.
