He said the aim of the meeting was to find a way out of the situation.

Life in Kashmir has come to standstill for the past 98 days due to street protests which erupted after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8.

The unrest has claimed 84 lives, including two cops, and left thousands of others injured in clashes between protestors and security forces.
