New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a high-level meeting on Thursday to discuss the security situation in Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) following a series of terror-related incidents, media reports said.

The meeting, attended by National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval and other senior officials, aimed to assess the current security landscape in the region.

According to government sources cited by news agency ANI, Prime Minister Modi received a comprehensive overview of the ongoing counter-terrorism efforts in the region. He was briefed on the strategies and operations being implemented to combat terrorist activities and ensure the safety of the area.

During the meeting, PM Modi emphasized the importance of deploying India's full range of counter-terror capabilities. He instructed officials to implement all available resources and strategies to combat terrorism effectively, stressing the need for a robust and coordinated response to potential threats.

PM Modi also spoke with Home Minister Amit Shah to discuss the deployment of security forces and ongoing counter-terror operations. He also communicated with J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to review the situation and was briefed on the efforts being undertaken by the local administration.

The review meeting follows a string of major terror assaults in J&K in the last few days, raising concerns about the security in the region.:

On June 9, terrorists opened fire at a bus in Reasi, causing it to fall into a deep gorge. At least nine pilgrims as well as the bus driver and the conductor were killed and 42 others were injured.

Further, terror attacks in Kathua and Doda, where a Special Operations Group (SOG) constable sustained injuries during an encounter with terrorists, have raised alarm about the deteriorating security situation in the Union Territory.

During the meeting, Prime Minister Narendra Modi directed officials to deploy the "full spectrum of counter-terror capabilities." He stressed the importance of a coordinated response to the security challenges faced in the region.
