PM Narendra Modi on Sunday chaired a high-level meeting with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar in the wake of terror strike at the Indian Air Force base near Pathankot in Punjab.

Modi held the meeting soon after his return after his two-day visit to Karnataka.

“Immediately on landing in Delhi, PM @narendramodi is chairing a high level meeting with the NSA, Foreign Secretary & other officials,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a tweet.

Security forces on Sunday nailed two more terrorists who had attacked the Indian Air Force base at Pathankot taking the number of terrorists killed in the operation to six. Four terrorists were killed on Saturday in a 15-hour gunfight in which the NSG, Indian Army and IAF commandos were involved, assisted by IAF attack helicopters.

Seven security personnel, including an officer of the National Security Guard, were also killed in the counter-offensive against the terrorists.

The terror attack came almost a week after ModiA flew into Lahore, on his way back from Afghanistan, for a surprise meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif.

Both Modi and Sharif had vowed to pursue the derailed bilateral peace process.
