Jammu, Jan 12: Union Home Minister Amit Shah will visit the Rajouri district on Friday to review the ground situation with the security forces and may also announce measures to strengthen the Village Defence Committees of the district
The Home Minister's visit comes in the wake of twin terror attacks in Rajouri which left seven people dead. According to the sources, Shah will visit the place where the terrorist attack happened and meet the family members of the civilians killed in these incidents.
Amid multi-layer security cover, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will reach Dhangri village of Rajouri  at around 11 am. Shah will return to Jammu at 1:30 pm. In Jammu, he will preside over the meeting of officers of civil administration and security establishment at Raj Bhavan at 2 pm.
“Security arrangements have been put in place to ensure smooth arrival of the Home Minister,” sources said, adding that “A high alert has been sounded on highways, Rajouri district and also in parts of Jammu. All security agencies have been put on high alert.”
“The Home Minister will meet members of all three families who have lost their family members in January 1 attack in Dhangri,” a source privy to Home Minister’s itinerary, said. Sources said that the Home Minister may hand over job letters to next of kin of slain Dhangri attack victims. BJP General Secretary (Org) Ashok Koul confirmed that the Home Minister is visiting Rajouri tomorrow. "He will fly back to Delhi after chairing a security meet in Jammu," Koul said.
The Home Minister after meeting the family members of the slain will chair a high level security meeting in Jammu where top officials of police, army, CRPF, BSF and other security agencies will participate. Sources in the security establishment said that the Home Minister will get the feedback from the security officials on the recent attack on the civilians in Dhangri village and the progress achieved so far in the investigations of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted by the police top brass.
Sources said that Home Minister may likely announce some security measures that include further strengthening of Village Defence Committees (VDCs) in Rajouri district as demanded by the locals there in the wake of January 1 attack in which seven civilians including two minors lost their lives. The locals of Dhangri, Rajouri in their memorandum submitted to LG Manoj Sinha had demanded strengthening of VDCs on the lines of Doda district and covering the entire district under strict CCTV surveillance. The locals had also demanded patrolling of Army on vital roads and protection of temples in the district.
Earlier on January 9, the Home Minister held a crucial meeting with top leaders of the Jammu and Kashmir unit of the BharatiyaJanata Party at his residence in the national capital.
The meeting was in the wake of the recent terror attacks in the Kashmir valley. (ANI/KNO)
