News Agencies | Updated on: 20 September 2016, 12:57 IST

Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi will review the security situation in Kashmir in the backdrop of the deadly terror attack on the army base in Uri on on 18 September and the ongoing unrest in the Valley.

Mehrishi arrived in Kashmir on 20 September, two days after four Jaish-e-Mohammad militants stormed an army base in Uri sector of Baramulla district, killing 18 soldiers before they were eliminated, officials said.

The Union Home Secretary will hold a security review meeting which will be attended by top officials from various security forces, police and intelligence agencies, the officials said.

They said the Uri attack and ongoing unrest in Kashmir, which began a day after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with security forces on 8 July, will be the focus of discussions.

Mehrishi was scheduled to arrive here yesterday but postponed the visit by one day.
