Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday called on governor NN Vohra in Srinagar and discussed continued attacks on police personnel in the Valley, following the lynching of a police officer in Nowhatta area.

The governor and the chief minister discussed issues relating to the continuing attacks on police personnel including the gruesome killing of deputy superintendent of police Mohammed Ayub Pandith, an official spokesman said.

Ayub was stripped and lynched by a mob outside the historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar on Thursday night.

The spokesman said Mehbooba and Vohra discussed the measures to be taken to support the families of those who lay down their lives in the line of duty.

He said based on his earlier discussion with Union home minister Rajnath Singh, the governor also discussed with the chief minister the urgent steps required to be taken to provide bullet-proof vests and vehicles and other protective equipments to the police officers working in the field.

The chief minister briefed the governor about the action under way to finalise the Goods and Services Tax framework for enforcement in the state, the spokesman said.

The two agreed that any delay in regard to this important matter would have serious adverse consequences for the state’s economy and the welfare of its people, he said.

They also reviewed issues being faced in the educational arena and the possible steps to be taken for safeguarding the interests of youth, particularly the careers of school and college going students, he added.
