NEW DELHI: National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on Monday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and briefed him about the security situation in the wake of a fidayeen attack on an army camp in Baramulla and the ceasefire violations by Pakistan.

Doval's meeting with the Prime Minister comes after the late Sunday night attack by fidayeen militants on a 46 Rashtriya Rifles army camp in Baramulla, which was foiled. Two Border Security Forces troopers were injured, one of who died later.

Pakistan Rangers have also been firing on Indian positions, in violation of the 2003 ceasefire agreement. 

Pakistani troops fired at Indian posts at two places in Poonch sector in Jammu region.

Firing was also reported at the Chakri border outpost (BoP) of Border Security Force (BSF) along the International Border with Pakistan on Monday as BSF troopers repulsed an intrusion bid by 8-10 people in the counter offensive.

A search operation was also launched in the border belt of Gurdaspur district of north Punjab following an unsuccessful infiltration bid along the International Border with Pakistan.
