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.
