The government of India's "special representative" for a dialogue in Jammu and Kashmir Dineshwar Sharma reached Jammu on Wednesday after spending two days in the Valley.

He was accompanied by Chandramauli Kumar Prasad, chairman Press Council of India and Syed Rafat Alam, chairman Uttar Pradesh Human Rights Commission.

The trio was received by divisional commissioner Jammu Mandeep Bhandari and inspector general of Jammu, SD Jamwal at the Jammu airport and escorted to the state guest house.

A source said that at 4.50 pm, Sharma called on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti at her residence and reportedly briefed her about his two-day visit to northern Kashmir districts including Kupwara and Baramulla.

"The two leaders also discussed ways and means for reaching out to various stakeholders," the source said.

However, an official dubbed the meeting as a courtesy call.

Sharma also met Governor NN Vohra at Raj Bhavan in the evening. "This is the sixth meeting between Vohra and Sharma since the latter took over," an official spokesman said.

Sharma informed Vohra about his just-concluded visit to Kashmir and his tentative plans regarding his future engagements.

PDP's youth wing president and secretary J&K sports council, Waheed-ur-Rehman Parra also called on Sharma at the guest house to "discuss issues of youth."

"Sharma will be meeting various delegations and NGOs on Thursday," a source said.
