One jawan was killed in an encounter in Handwara in Jammu and Kashmir, just minutes after reports of a infiltration bid surfaced on 20 September in Uri.
A number of terrorists were reported to be holed up.
This comes just few hours after 10 terrorists were killed as Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control in Lachipura area in the Uri sector on 20 September.
The area has been tense since 18 September, when 18 Army jawans were killed and four terrorists were neutralised in a terror attack in Uri. The officials also recovered four AK 47 rifles, four Under Barrel Grenade Launchers and other war-like stores from the four slain terrorists.
The terror attack has heightened tensions between India and Pakistan. At the meeting convened by Rajnath Singh, Doval and top officials of the ministries of Home and Defence, paramilitary forces and chiefs of intelligence agencies briefed him on the prevailing situation in the Kashmir Valley as well as along the LoC, official sources said.
The presence of the Foreign Secretary at the meeting is significant as government plans to launch a diplomatic offensive against Pakistan.
