New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister
Omar Abdullah on Tuesday met Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and
discussed the progress of interlocutors and the present law
and order situation in the state.

The 30-minute meeting was held immediately after the
standing committee on National Integration Council (NIC) met.
During the meeting, the visit of interlocutors -- Dileep
Padgaonkar, Radha Kumar and M M Ansari -- to Kashmir was
discussed and the Chief Minister apprised Chidambaram of the
developments in this regard, official sources said.

The Chief Minister also briefed him about the Unified
Headquarters meeting last evening to review the preparedness
of the security grid in the state.

The meeting, chaired by the Chief Minister, came in the
wake of an encounter in which three JeM militants were killed
at Malroo in the outskirts of the city last week.
The JeM claimed that the militants were on a suicide
mission to attack the headquarters of 15 Corps and another
army camp in the city.

"Our effort will be to foil any attempt to disturb peace
and all necessary steps will be taken to thwart any militant
attack," Omar had said yesterday.
