New Delhi: After holding high-level talks with PM Narendra Modi and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will be briefing the Parliament on Jammu & Kashmir at 11 am. He will first speak in Rajya Sabha at 11 am and in Lok Sabha at 12 pm.

Amid an unprecedented lockdown and flaring tensions in Jammu and Kashmir, as uncertainty looms large over a build-up of troops in the valley, the Union Cabinet on Monday met at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence here.


Union Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval were among the leaders present in the high-level meeting.

The meeting comes after political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir including former Chief Ministers Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and Jammu and Kashmir People's Conference chairman Sajad Lone, were placed under house arrest as strict restrictions were imposed in the Kashmir Valley from early Monday morning.

The state administration has also imposed Section 144 in Srinagar, as well as in Jammu, while mobile Internet services have also been suspended.
