New Delhi: Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla on Tuesday held a high-level security review meeting with top officials in the intelligence agencies, senior officials of the paramilitary forces and Jammu and Kashmir Police.
During the meeting with the Home Ministry top official, the J&K Police, led by their Director General Dilbag Singh, made a presentation on the prevailing situation in the Union Territory (UT) and all the steps taken to strengthen the security set up there.
On his part the Home Secretary, while taking stock of the situation in J&K, especially reviewed the measures taken to foil any future attempt of drone attack, the sources said.
Besides J&K Police officials, the meeting was also attended by IB chief Arvind Kumar and DG of CRPF Kuldip Singh and CISF’s Additional DG Sudhir Kumar Saxena who is holding the charge of DG, the sources said.
The meeting, which took place nearly a fortnight after a drone attack on an air force station in Jammu, was a follow up of the high-level meeting that Union Home Minister Amit Shah chaired in June, sources in the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said.
The ongoing counter militancy operations, radicalisation inside jails in the UT were other issues which figured in the meeting, they said.
It was a first instance when the Pakistan-based militants deploying drones to strike vital installations, two bombs were dropped at the IAF station in Jammu in the early hours of June 27, causing minor injuries to two airmen.
As the case has been handed over to the NIA for investigation and the NIA sleuths have been trying to determine the flight path of the drones that dropped the bombs as they scanned the CCTV footage, including from cameras installed on the boundary walls of the military aviation facility. (UNI)
