Jammu and Kashmir governor NN Vohra met Union home minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi on Tuesday to discuss the prevailing security situation in the state.
According to officials, the home minister and the governor also discussed Monday’s attack in which the Pakistan Army killed two Indian soldiers and mutilated their bodies near the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district.
Singh had chaired a high-level meeting on Monday to review the situation in the state, which was attended by home secretary Rajiv Mehrishi, Intelligence Bureau chief Rajiv Jain, RAW chief Anil Dhasmana and Central Reserve Police Force chief Rajiv Rai Bhatnagar.
According to sources, the meeting discussed the fresh trouble in the valley, where a spike in stone-pelting incidents by students has caused law and order problems.
Monday’s meeting took place hours before the Pakistan Army attack on the Indian soldiers, and the killing of five policeman in a bid to rob a bank cash van in Kulgam in the Valley.
Singh and Vohra discussed on how to control the situation at the earliest.
