Shah reviews security situation, discusses civilian killings in Kashmir with police top brass
Union Home Minister Amit Shah discussed various security issues, including the recent killing of civilians in Jammu and Kashmir, in a meeting with state police and central armed police forces chiefs here on Monday, officials said.
Shah chaired the concluding session of the ''National Security Strategies Conference'' at the Intelligence Bureau (IB) headquarters here and the deliberations held were ''detailed and expansive'', a spokesperson of the ministry said.
''The conference deliberated on various internal security challenges and discussed ways to tackle them firmly,'' the spokesperson said.
Official sources said the overall security situation in the country and various law and order issues, including the recent incidents of targeted killings of civilians in Kashmir, were discussed in the meeting.
A spate of civilian killings have taken place in Kashmir in which non-local labourers have been shot dead by terrorists over the last few days.
In the meeting, the home minister also reviewed the current Left Wing Extremism (LWE) scenario in various Naxal-affected states and discussed busting of terror modules across the country, the sources said.
The meeting is part of the exercise initiated by the home minister to meet the top police brass once in six months.
