Kashmir violence: CM Mehbooba Mufti meets Rajnath Singh to review the situation

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti along with several ministers of her government on Sunday met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh who is on a two-day visit to the Valley to take stock of the situation in the wake of deadly clashes that have left 46 people dead and 3,400 others injured.

Mehbooba led the government delegation which called on Singh after the Home Minister had met representatives from ruling PDP, BJP and opposition National Conference separately. "The meeting is still in progress. The Union Minister will address a press conference later in the day before he returns to Delhi," a state government official said.

Curfew remained in force in five districts of Kashmir and some parts of the summer capital as a precautionary measure as an uneasy calm prevailed in the Valley where normal life was paralysed for the 16th consecutive day today.

The situation across the Valley is peaceful so far, an official said. Clashes broke out between protesters and security forces a day after the killing of militant commander Burhan Wani in an encounter.
