Union Home Minister Amit Shah chaired a high-level review meeting in the Ministry of Home Affairs at the north Block and examined the Jammu and Kashmir security situation on Thursday, reported news agency ANI.
The meeting included attendance by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, Union Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla, Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police Dilbag Singh, and other high-ranking officials.
In the past three years, Jammu and Kashmir have seen a number of targeted killings.
Since the abrogation of Article 370 in 2019 and through July 2022, the government had informed Parliament that as many as 118 civilians, including five Kashmiri Pandits and 16 other Hindus and Sikhs, had been killed in J-K.
In May, four Hindu pilgrims were killed and something like 20 were injured when their bus caught fire close to Katra in Jammu. The fire might have been started by a sticky bomb, according to the police.
On 5 August 2019, Article 370, which granted Jammu and Kashmir special status, was repealed, resulting in the state’s division into Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, two Union Territories.
