PM Modi also spoke to Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Jammu and Kashmir Lt Governor Manoj Sinha and discussed the deployment of security forces and counter-terror operations.

Sinha also briefed the Prime Minister on the efforts being undertaken by local administration.

Terrorists struck at four places in Reasi, Kathua and Doda districts over the past four days, killing nine pilgrims and a CRPF jawan and leaving seven security personnel and several others injured.

Massive search operations were launched by security forces in forest belts of different districts of Jammu and Kashmir to track down and neutralise the ultras involved in the recent terror attacks in the Union Territory.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Police has also released sketches of four terrorists involved in two attacks in Doda district and announced a reward of Rs 20 lakh for information leading to their arrest.

"Jammu and Kashmir Police has released sketches of four terrorists who are believed to be in the upper reaches of Bhaderwah, Thathri, Gandoh and carrying out terror-related activities," a police spokesperson said.

Several districts of the Valley, including Sunderbani, Nowshera, Domana, Lamberi and Akhnoor areas of Rajouri and Jammu districts, have been put on high alert after intelligence agencies warned of attacks by terror outfits on security forces.

The intel agencies have warned of plans by terror outfits to launch 'fidayeen' (suicide) attacks on security forces camps, installations, and asked to exercise maximum alert in the areas, officials said.
