Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday met Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president, Amit Shah in New Delhi, amid simmering anger in the Kashmir Valley over the death of four civilians during the week in clashes with security forces.

The two leaders, according to sources from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), discussed the latest situation in the Kashmir Valley where authorities have imposed curfew following clashes in north Kashmir.

It was the first meeting between Shah and Mehbooba after the PDP president became the first woman chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir on 4 April.

BJP leader, Ram Madhav, who is the party’s affairs in-charge in Jammu and Kashmir, was also present at the meeting.

Mehbooba arrived in the capital on Tuesday and has since met Home Minister Rajnath Singh, External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, Urban Development and Housing Minister, M Venkaiah Naidu and Road Transport and Highways Minister, Nitin Gadkari.

She also met Prime Narendra Modi and Defence Minister, Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday separately to discuss security and developmental issues in the state.
