NEW DELHI -- Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra today met Prime Minister Narendra Modi here and discussed with him the security situation in the Valley.

The meeting was held at the Prime Minister's Office at South Block and lasted about 45 minutes. The governor discussed the continuing unrest in parts of the Kashmir Valley, official sources said.

He also informed the prime minister about various developmental works being done in Jammu and Kashmir, they said.

Vohra had on Tuesday met Home Minister Rajnath Singh and apprised him of the security situation in the state.

The Valley is witnessing a fresh bout of violence for the last few days. South Kashmir, especially, has seen a spate of attacks on banks in Shopian and Pulwama districts.

Militants had yesterday attacked an army patrol that left a civilian dead and three personnel injured during a massive operation involving 4,000 troops started by the security forces to clear South Kashmir of terrorists.
