Home minister directly headed to Poonch district in a BSF chopper and visited Chakan-Da-Bagh, a crossing point for travel and trade between the two sides of Line of Control (LOC), official sources said.

He met a delegation of traders and discussed their problems. The delegation presented a memorandum to Shinde.

Home Minister is scheduled to fly to Suchetgarh forward area in R S Pura border belt in Jammu district where he will review the security situation at Border Posts.

Shinde will also take stock of the situation prevailing at the International Border in Jammu sector, especially in the backdrop of a 550 meters long tunnel connecting Pakistan and India being uncovered at Chechwal in Samba sector.

He will meet several local delegations, including one from the Congress party, in the circuit house before his departure to the Kashmir Valley.

This is Shinde’s second visit to J&K since he took over as the Home Minister. He made his maiden tour to the state by visiting Leh and Kargil towns last week.
