The plan is to respond to the militants, a high level meeting led by NSA Ajit Doval


Bengali Hunt Desk: National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval on Saturday conducted a survey on security in Jammu and Kashmir. He directed top army commanders and paramilitary forces to strengthen the Line of Control (LoC) on the Pakistan border and the anti-infiltration grid and anti-militant grid in the Kashmir Valley.

The meeting was called after six Indian soldiers were killed in recent encounters in Handwara, Sopore and Baramulla.

According to a report in the English-language Hindustan Times, undercover sources have revealed that the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed is planning a joint suicide attack on the army and paramilitary forces on Monday, March 11th. Top government officials also said that NSA Ajit Doval was keeping an eye on the sudden increase in Hawaii movements by the Pakistan Air Force along India's western border.

The five-hour meeting was also attended by Army Chief Manoj Mukund Narbane, Intelligence Bureau Director Arvind Kumar, Research and Analysis Wing Chief Kumar Goel, Border Security Force Director General SS Desbal and Central Reserve Police Officer AK Maheshwari.
