The CISF Director General's meeting with the Home Minister and Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju followed the surgical strikes carried out by Indian forces on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control early on Thursday.

It was OP Singh's first meeting with Rajnath Singh after taking over as Director General of CISF on 26 September.

"The present security situation in the country was discussed in the meeting. OP Singh briefed the two Ministers on the steps taken by the CISF to strengthen security at vital installations, including airports and ports," a Home Ministry official said.

A group of four Jaish-e-Mohammad militants had attacked an army camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir on 18 September, leaving 18 soldiers dead and 30 others injured.
