New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Wednesday called an emergency meeting to review the situation in Kashmir where violent protests continued over civilian deaths in firing by the security forces.

A senior official in the Prime Minister’s Office said the meeting will be held at 5.30 p.m.

Sources said Home Minister P. Chidambaram, Home Secretary G.K. Pillai and senior intelligence officials will attend the meeting.

The Prime Minister has just arrived from Toronto after attending the G20 Summit.

Chidambaram is expected to brief the meeting on his discussions with Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.

National Security Advisor Shiv Shankar Menon is also likely to attend the meeting.

Kashmir valley continued to boil with rising tensions spreading from the northern region to the southern end.

According to reports, at least 11 people, including eight teen-aged boys, were killed in clashes with security forces and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in the last 16 days in the valley.

Chief minister Omar Abdullah said the crisis is not because of ‘bad governance’.

“Kashmir crisis is not because of bad governance. The recent violence shows it takes two hands to clap. Anti-national forces, vested interests, have come together to create trouble,” Abdullah said.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram voiced full support to Abdullah.

“I endorse every word of Omar Abdullah’s statement. Tension is being created by anti-national forces. We will investigate allegations of excessive forces in Kashmir,” Chidambaram said on Tuesday.

Chidambaram is expected to visit the state on July two to take stock of the situation.
