Union Cabinet to review post-Uri terror attack scenario, other issues

New Delhi [India], Sept. 21 - The Union Cabinet will be meeting under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Wednesday morning.

Though the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday is a routine affair, it is significant in the sense that it is being held in the backdrop of last Sunday's terror attack in Uri in which 18 army soldiers were killed.

The Cabinet Committee on Security is also expected to hold a meeting to review the situation arising out of the attack.

Meanwhile, Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi has reviewed the security situation in Kashmir in the backdrop of the deadly militant attack on an army base in Uri and the ongoing unrest in the valley.

Mehrishi arrived in Srinagar early Tuesday morning and held series of meetings to review security situation across the Kashmir Valley.

He had detailed discussions with top officials from various security forces, police and intelligence agencies.

Mehrishi also called on Governor N.N. Vohra and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to discuss the prevailing situation in the valley. He left for New Delhi in the evening. (ANI)
