Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday morning chaired a high-level security review meeting at the ministry of home affairs over the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir post the Uri terror attack.
National security adviser Ajit Doval, the director of the Intelligence Bureau, RAW chief, foreign secretary S Jaishankar, minister of state in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh and other senior home and defence officials were in attendance.
On Monday, the Union home minister, defence minister Manohar Parrikar and the security top brass of the country met to review the security situation in the violence-hit state.
After assuring that India would go after the perpetrators of the deadly Uri attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave the green signal to diplomatically isolate Pakistan on international fora.
In one of the worst attack in recent times, at least 18 soldiers lost their lives and over 20 others were injured as heavily armed militants stormed an army camp close to the headquarters of the 12th Brigade at Uri in Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
Director general of military operation Lt Ranbir Singh said the four terrorists, who attacked the military base, belonged to Pakistan’s banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.
