He said that a Special Investigation Team has been constituted to look into the matter. The Government is also keeping a close watch on the current situation in the state.
Mr Shah further added, “the situation was reviewed in detail to ensure that normalcy is restored at the earliest. It was decided that all agencies should ensure that no such unfortunate incident recurs in future while undertaking operations against insurgents.”
