Home Secretary Mehrishi to visit Srinagar

New Delhi:

Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi will visit Srinagar on Monday to review the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir with the top police and civil officials under the state government, an official source said here.
The visit will come in the wake of the terror attack in Uri town and the directives from Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Seventeen army soldiers and four militants killed in the dastardly attack carried out allegedly by Jaish-e-Mohammad militants.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh blamed Pakistan for the attack and said that Islamabad should be isolated.

Home Secretary will also call on the state Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Governor N.N. Vohra.

Mehrishi is expected to attend a series of meetings with officials of the state government, army, police and paramilitary forces, the source added.
