Home Secretary reviews situation in Kashmir

Srinagar: In the wake of the Uri attack, overall security situation in Jammu and Kashmir was reviewed on Tuesday as Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi met governor N N Vohra as well as chief minister Mehbooba Mufti here.
Mehrishi arrived here early this morning, two days after four alleged Jaish-e-Mohammad militants stormed the army base in Uri sector of Baramulla district and killed 18 soldiers, officials said here.
During his daylong visit, he called on the governor and the chief minister and discussed the security scenario in the Valley with them.
“The Union Home Secretary discussed the matters pertaining to the prevailing situation in the Valley with the Governor and the Chief Minister,” they said.
Mehrishi held a security review meeting which was attended by top officials from government forces, police and intelligence agencies.
The deadly Uri attack and ongoing uprising in Kashmir, which began a day after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with forces on July 8, were the focus of discussions, the officials said.
He was scheduled to arrive here on Monday but postponed the visit by one day.
