JAMMU — Union Home Minister Amit Shah chaired a high-level security review meeting in Jammu on the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir, on Friday.
Addressing a press conference in Jammu after the meeting, the Union Home Minister, according to the news agency KDC, said, “My desire was to share the grief of victims’ families of the Rajouri terror attacks, but I could not go there due to bad weather. I spoke to all the families over the phone and tried to join their grief.”
Shah said that the courage of all those victims’ families is an example for the whole country. “It is a big thing to maintain the morale of fighting hard even after such a big incident.”
The Union Home Minister said that following the policy of zero tolerance against militancy under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, all security agencies are fighting a decisive battle against ‘terrorism’. He said that the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi stands firmly with the families of the victims and is determined to help them.
Mr. Shah said that with full empathy, the affected families would be given benefits through various schemes of the government. “Along with this, all possible help will be provided by the LG with relief measures under his authority.”

He said that all the security agencies of the country are fully prepared and their morale is high with confidence to prevent such incidents.
He said that NIA and Jammu Police will jointly investigate the terrorist incidents that took place in these two days and this investigation will be done keeping together all the incidents that happened in the last one and a half years.
The Union Home Minister said that support and information systems of militant groups were also discussed in detail during the meeting and all the agencies have assured to create a complete 360-degree security mechanism. Mr. Shah said that the people responsible for these terrorist attacks will be brought to book at the earliest and will be dealt with severe punishment.
Shah further said that compared to the time when the menace of militancy started in Jammu and Kashmir, there has been the least number of incidents and deaths in recent times. He said that within three months, the security grid in every area of Jammu would be made impenetrable by further strengthening it. “I assure the citizens of Jammu that whatever may be the intention of the terrorist organizations, our security agencies will be ready to protect Jammu.”
