New Delhi: In the wake of grenade explosions
in Jammu and Kashmir, Home Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday
reviewed the security situation at a meeting of senior
officials.

The high-level meeting, attended by Home Secretary R K
Singh and other senior officials, took stock of the law and
order situation in the state, particularly in the Valley where
suspected militants exploded several grenades in the last two
days.

Sources said the Home Secretary briefed the meeting about
his recent visit to Jammu and Kashmir as part of the team of
Secretaries who met Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and top civil
and security officials.

The meeting comes in the midst of a raging debate over a
move to withdraw the Disturbed Areas Act, which will enable
revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act in some areas of
the state.
