“Deliberations were detailed and expansive, given the presence of all DGPs and DGs of CPFs,” the Home Ministry said in a tweet.

“The Conference deliberated on various internal security challenges and discussed ways to tackle them firmly,” the Ministry added.

The recent killing of civilians and exodus of migrant labourers from Jammu and Kashmir were discussed in detail.

The day-long conference is an annual affair held around June but it was delayed due to second wave of COVID-19.

National Security Adviser Ajit Doval was also absent as he is on leave. The two deputy NSA’s- Rajinder Khanna and Pankaj Saran were present.
