Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Amit Shah reviewed the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday in a high-level meeting with senior officers of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in the national capital, and directed to call another detailed meeting on June 16 over the issue.

Shah conducted the meeting in the wake of recent terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, which have raised concerns about the security arrangements in the region.

Since June 9, there have been terror strikes at four places in Reasi, Kathua, and Doda in which nine pilgrims and a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawan were martyred while a civilian and seven security personnel were injured.
