New Delhi:

Home Minister Rajnath Singh today discussed with top officials, including NSA Ajit Doval, the security situation in the country, including the tension at NIT Srinagar and the denial of permission to an NIA team to visit Pakistan in connection with the Pathankot attack. The Home Minister was briefed about the internal security situation in the country and steps taken to reduce tension in NIT Srinagar, official sources said.

The situation has been tense at NIT Srinagar following clashes triggered by India’s defeat at the hands of West Indies in the World Cup T20 last week.

The high-level meeting also discussed the issue of Pakistan’s denial of permission to an NIA team to visit the country in connection with the Pathankot airbase terror attack.

Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit had yesterday said that the visit of a Pakistani Joint Investigation Team to India was not on “reciprocity”, but more about extending cooperation.

India had expected that Pakistan would allow a team of NIA investigators to visit the country after their JIT’s visit here. Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi, chiefs of different intelligence agencies and other senior officials attended the meeting.
