Home Minister Rajnath Singh Tuesday again reviewed the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir with top officials, including NSA Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar, in the wake of the militant attack in Uri.
Doval and top officials of the ministries of Home and Defence, paramilitary forces and chiefs of intelligence agencies briefed Singh on the prevailing situation in the Kashmir Valley as well as along the Line of Control, official sources said.
The presence of the Foreign Secretary in the meeting is significant as government plans to launch a diplomatic offensive against Pakistan.
Sources said the Home Minister took stock of the steps taken to check infiltration along the LoC and the International Border with Pakistan.
The Home Minister and the top officials also reviewed the security situation across the country, including Punjab which had faced two similar terror attacks early this year.
Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi is in Srinagar to assess the ground situation in Kashmir.
Heavily armed militants had stormed an army base in Uri in Kashmir on Sunday, killing 18 soldiers. (Agencies)
