Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday reviewed the overall security situation in the country in the wake of inputs that 10 terrorists from Pakistan may have sneaked into India for attacks.

The high-level meeting, attended by top security officials, including Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi, the minister took stock of the situation and reviewed steps taken to prevent any possible terror attacks.

“It was a routine meeting where the minister discusses and takes stock of security situation in the country,” said a ministry official.

The officials briefed the home minister about the measures taken to beef up security at strategic locations.

The meeting comes in the wake of information from Pakistan that 10 terrorists may have slipped into India to strike during Mahashivratri festivities at famous temples in Gujarat.

Security was beefed up across Gujarat and in other parts of the country after National Security Adviser Ajit Doval got a call from his Pakistani counterpart Nasir Janjua about the 10 terrorists from two Pakistan-based outfits having sneaked into India.
