The focus of the discussions is going to be a thorough degree review of the security arrangements being put into place. Intelligence inputs about the threat of vehicle-borne improvised explosive device, or VBIED, and other types of threats,” a senior police officer told NDTV, adding a VBIED was also likely used in the Poonch attack.
