New Delhi, Nov 20 (TIWN) Prime Minister Narendra Modi reviewed the security apparatus along the International Border and the Line of Control with Pakistan on Friday amid incidents of terrorists infiltrating into the country.

The review meeting happened a day after four terrorists belonging to Pakistan-based terrorist outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) infiltrated the international border area in the Samba sector and were on the way to Srinagar before being killed in an encounter near Nagrota in the Jammu area.

Soon after the meeting attended by other top security dignitaries of India, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Intelligence Bureau Chief Arvind Kumar, Modi through social media said: "Neutralising of 4 terrorists belonging to Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed and the presence of large cache of weapons and explosives with them indicates that their efforts to wreak major havoc and destruction have once again been thwarted."

He also said, "Our security forces have once again displayed utmost bravery and professionalism. Thanks to their alertness, they have defeated a nefarious plot to target grassroots level democratic exercises in Jammu and Kashmir."

Sources privy to the high-level meeting said that Prime Minister reviewed the security grid as investigations in the Nagrota encounter indicated that the terrorists were planning to do something big on the anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.
