Reportedly, the top-level meeting is taking place amidst intelligence reports hinting at Pakistani terrorists making multiple infiltration attempts to launch an attack similar to the one in Pulwama in February.
The Indian security establishment pre-empting a terrorist attack has deployed a large number of security personnel in the state and tourists and pilgrims on Amarnath yatra have been asked to leave Jammu and Kashmir immediately.
The Indian Army has successfully foiled Pakistan Army’s BAT (Border Action Team) attempt on the night of July 31 and August 1, 2019, in the Keran sector, killing at least five to seven intruders.
Meanwhile, a Union Cabinet meeting has been called at the residence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg at 9:30 AM on Monday to discuss the Kashmir situation.
