Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has convened an all party meeting in Srinagar on July 21 to discuss the prevailing law and order situation in the Valley, an official spokesperson said on Monday.

“Invitation has been extended to all the political parties including PDP, BJP, National Conference, Congress, CPI(M), CPI, National Panthers Party, Democratic Party Nationalist, Peoples Democratic Front and others to discuss the prevailing situation and the measures to be taken to restore peace and normalcy in the Valley,” the spokesperson said.

The decision to convene the all party meeting comes 10 days after the killing of young Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8, which led to violent clashes between protestors and law enforcing agencies across the Valley, leaving 39 persons dead and over 3400 others injured.
