The Jammu and Kashmir State Cabinet met here today under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and expressed deep anguish over the recent loss of lives in the Kashmir valley during the prevailing law and order situation.
The Cabinet made a fervent appeal to all shades of political opinion to help restore peace and normalcy in the valley.
While reviewing the security and law and order situation in the State, the Cabinet directed the Police and security agencies to exercise maximum restraint while handling Law and Order situations to prevent loss of human lives.
The Cabinet also urged the civil society and parents to counsel the youth to stay away from violent protests which, in spite of maximum restraint, can at times lead to fatal consequences.
The State administration has also been directed to take all required measures to tackle the situation effectively and at the same time ensure that the general public is not put to any inconvenience and their grievances are addressed.
