Srinagar: Amid heightened security, New Delhi-appointed representative for Kashmir Dineshwar Sharma Friday conferred with a number of delegations, including sports persons and civil society members, in the south Kashmir district of Kulgam.
The former Intelligence Bureau chief — who is on his fourth visit to the Valley after being appointed as a representative for Kashmir on October 23, 2017– on Thursday met many delegations in south Kashmir district of Shopian, where five civilians were killed in force firing last month.
Official sources said that deployment of government forces had been deployed in strength in the entire Kulgam district, particularly the main town, to prevent any protests.
They said the roads leading to DC office Kulgam were sealed with barbed wires and by parking forces vehicles.
Media persons, including journalists and photo-journalists representing different media organisations, were stopped at the main gate of the DC office and barred from entering the premises.
