Senior civil, police, paramilitary force and army officers attended the meeting.
Lt Gen Swamy, who is also the Security Advisor to state government, complimented the security forces, intelligence agencies and civil administration for achieving peerless synergy and immense coordination amongst themselves towards a common and national cause.
