PM Narendra Modi called for a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security at 10 am on Wednesday morning. It is believed that PM Modi has asked Home Minister Rajnath Singh to brief him on the situation in Kashmir. As the unrest in the Kashmir valley enters its 89th day on Wednesday following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8, normal life in the state continues to remain disrupted.
Though there are signs of fatigue seen in the three-month long unrest in the valley, strikes sponsored by separatists continue to cripple daily routine.
As many as 83 persons, including two police officers, have been killed and thousands others injured in clashes between protestors and security forces since unrest began a day after Burhan Wani’s killing.
The meeting called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ended.
Apart from the Home Minister, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Minister of State for the Prime Minister Office Jitendra Singh and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Minister of Road Transport and Highways of India Nitin Gadkari were present for the meeting.
