“The governor also discussed with chief minister the continuing militant attacks on police personnel and urged her to review the existing policy and scales of help provided to the next of kin of those killed in the line of duty,” the spokesman said. “And, as required, he (governor) would also take up this matter with the Union Home Minister.”
