Home minister reviews security situation

New Delhi, Dec 30 (IANS) Home Minister Rajnath Singh Tuesday reviewed the country’s security situation at a high-level meeting here.

The meeting comes ahead of US President Barack Obama’s visit to India for the Republic Day celebrations and following the recent violence in Assam perpetrated by Bodo militants and a blast in Bengaluru.
“We discussed the country’s security situation,” army chief Gen. Dalbir Singh told reporters after the meeting, but refused to give details.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and chiefs of intelligence agencies were also present in the meeting.
Last week, the home minister had met the army chief to review the security situation in Assam where over 70 people were killed and around 10,000 were taking shelter in relief camps after Bodo militants attacked adivasis in three districts.
A blast in Bengaluru Sunday killed a woman and injured three other people.
India has already asked neighbours Bhutan and Myanmar to help evict Indian militants who are believed to have bases there.
