Intelligence agencies have reported that terrorists and their mentors in Pakistan are growing increasingly frustrated due to the successful elimination of key figures and their inability to carry out strikes in the Valley. In light of this, concerns have been raised that terrorists may resort to targeting soft targets, a matter expected to be thoroughly addressed in the Home Ministry's meeting.

“The deliberations will intricately address various facets, encompassing everything from fine-tuning anti-terrorism operations to reinforcing the Border Security Grid. A detailed PowerPoint presentation will spotlight specific areas requiring heightened security footprints, providing a strategic roadmap for our collective efforts,” said the top official to be part of the meeting.
