Union Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla will convene a high-level security review meeting on Jammu and Kashmir this afternoon here, reports said.

The meeting is being held in a hybrid manner at the Ministry of Home Affairs about 12.30 p.m., with key officials from the ministry attending, including Director Intelligence Bureau Tapan Deka and National Investigation Agency Director General Dinkar Gupta, among others.

Officials in the Ministry told ANI that the meeting is a “regular affair to review internal security across the country”.

“Officials in Jammu and Kashmir will also join the meeting, which is being held in a hybrid mode,” said the officials requesting anonymity.

The meeting was held after The Resistance Front (TRF)– an offshoot of Pakistan-based terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba– recently issued a threat letter to 56 employees of the Education Department from the Srinagar district.

Meanwhile, according to government sources, numerous Kashmiri Pandit organisations have sought a high-level investigation into how the identities of personnel working under the PM package in the Education Department, along with their names and places of assignment, were leaked to a terror outfit.

They have requested the government to protect the safety of personnel employed in the Kashmir Valley under the PM’s package.
