Doval meets J&K CM, governor


SRINAGAR: National security advisor AK Doval on Tuesday arrived here on a two-day visit to take stock of security in Kashmir in the wake of reports suggesting radicalisa­tion of the youth expressed through unfurling of flags of Islamic State and other militants groups.

Doval called on chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed at his residence, official sources said.

Security related issues were on the agenda of the meeting between the CM and the national security advisor, the sources said adding the exact details of what transpired between the two was not known.

They said hoisting of flags of outfits like Islamic State and Lashkar-e-Toiba and emergence of “home grown” militants, especially in south Kashmir region were likely issues to have come up during the discussion­s.

The sources said Doval, who is staying at the Rajbhawan here, also called on governor NN Vohra for similar discussion­s.

Top security and intelligen­ce officials of the state are likely to brief the national security advisor on the ongoing operations against militants in the valley before the latter returns to Delhi on Wednesday, the sources said.
