Jammu: Amid a spurt in terror activities in border districts of Rajouri and Poonch, a high-level security meeting was held on Saturday to devise an action plan to counter the emerging threat, a Police official said.

The conference held in Rajouri was attended by the Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Jammu zone, Mukesh Singh, and senior Army officers among others.

The meeting was convened nine days after two terrorists attacked an Army camp in Rajouri, killing four soldiers in a pre-dawn suicide strike that marked the return of ‘fidayeen’ (suicide) attacks to Jammu and Kashmir after more than three years.

Both the terrorists, believed to be from the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, were shot dead.

The official said the meeting was also attended by intelligence agencies, brigade commanders, senior superintendents of police of both Rajouri and Poonch, and the superintendent of police (Operations) of Shopian.

“Detailed discussion was held on the recent trends of terrorist activities in which the intelligence agencies briefed those attending the meeting. An action plan was devised to counter the emerging threat,” the official said.
