The meeting, that lasted nearly two hours, discussed the area domination and sanitisation exercise carried out by security forces in the vulnerable areas of the Valley, official sources said.

The meeting was convened by Omar after militants killed a sarpanch and injured a woman panch in separate attacks on Friday and Saturday.

The attacks have led to many Panchayat members from Sopore announcing their resignation before the media. However, government officials said they have not received any resignation so far.

The sources said the Chief Minister directed the police to carry out speedy investigations into the attacks on panchayat members so that assailants can be brought to book.
