HM, LG likely to review Kashmir situation post civilian killings
New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah is likely to hold discussions with Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor (LG) Manoj Sinha Saturday on the security situation in the union territory in the wake of recent targeted killings including those of Hindus and Sikhs.
“The home minister and the LG are expected to make a detailed review of the prevailing law and order situation and how to check terrorist attacks in the Kashmir valley,” the sources said.
Top officials of the Union Home Ministry, intelligence agencies and the Jammu and Kashmir administration are expected to attend the meeting.
At a high level meeting Thursday, Shah was “briefed about the latest modus operandi of the terrorists in carrying out attacks on soft targets and the steps taken to tighten the security,” the sources said.
Shah has directed the officials to ensure that those involved in the killings are nabbed and ensure such incidents do not recur.
The Central government has already dispatched a top official of the Intelligence Bureau to Srinagar “to coordinate operations against terrorists”.
