Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and discussed various issues, including the recent spurt in violent incidents in Kashmir, an official said.

During the 30-minute meeting, the chief minister briefed the home minister about the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir and the steps taken to maintain peace in the state.

Singh assured Mehbooba of all central assistance to her government in maintaining peace in the state, a home ministry official said.

The spurt of violence in Jammu and Kashmir include attacks on security personnel, killing of a PDP worker and the subsequent attack on his house and throat slitting of a teacher.

Incidents of braid chopping have also triggered panic in some parts of the state.

The constitution of a study group to examine the problems being faced by the people living near the International Border and the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir was also believed to have been discussed during the meeting, the official said.

The group was set up by the home ministry recently.

The CM also met Railway Minister Piyush Goyal yesterday.
