New Delhi: The Cabinet Committee on Security is likely to meet on Wednesday to discuss the situation arising out of the Uri terror attack.
Sources said the Cabinet Committee will meet tomorrow morning ahead of the meeting of the Union Cabinet. The issue of terror strike on an army camp in Uri which led to the death of 18 soldiers will figure in the meeting. Though Prime Minister Narendra Modi has discussed the terror attack with top ministers, the CCS will formally discuss the issue.
The CCS could also have other agenda besides the Uri strike. Sources in the government said that though such security-related issues are not discussed in the Union Cabinet, the issue of Uri attack could find a mention tomorrow. Top brass of the government is convinced that India has to launch a calibrated, multi-layered and strategic response and expose Pakistan in international forums like the UN, whose General Assembly is in session, official sources said.
As part of the plans, the Director General of Military Operations will hand over all the evidence linking Pakistan’s involvement in Uri attack to his Pakistani counterpart shortly.
Heavily-armed terrorists, believed to be from Pakistan-based JeM, had on Sunday stormed an army base in Uri in Kashmir, killing 18 soldiers.
