Rajnath Singh to visit Russia, US to highlight Pakistan role in terror

 
 
 
New Delhi: In a fresh attempt to raise the pressure on Pakistan in the international arena, India will take up the issue of cross-border terrorism with Russia and United States during the visit of home minister Rajnath Singh to the two nations in the coming week, starting next Sunday.
The growing influence of the Islamic State in the subcontinent will also be discussed during the visits to the two countries, sources said.
On Sunday, the home minister chaired a high-level meet to review security arrangements in the Kashmir Valley ahead of the Id festival later this week. It was decided to deploy additional paramilitary forces in and around Srinagar during Id-uz Zuha as it was felt that separatists may try and trigger fresh violence during the festival, an official source said.
National security adviser Ajit Doval, home secretary Rajiv Mehrishi and top intelligence and security officials were present at the review meeting.
