Shah reviews security situation, development projects in JK

New Delhi, Sep 09 (PTI):
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday reviewed the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir and development projects being implemented there, official sources said.
His meeting with top functionaries of the central government and the Union Territory administration came two days after the Taliban announced its interim government in Afghanistan.
There have been reports that Pakistan-based terror groups Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba — both active in Jammu and Kashmir and involved in a large number of terror attacks in the past — have shifted their bases to Afghanistan with a friendly Taliban regime in place.
The home minister reviewed the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir and steps being taken to check infiltration from across the border and maintain peace in the union territory, official sources said.
Sirajuddin Haqqani, the new acting interior minister of Afghanistan, is the head of the terror group Haqqani network, which was responsible for attacks on Indian assets, including the Indian embassy in Kabul, in the past.
