New Delhi: An all-party delegation, led by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, will visit Jammu and Kashmir on September 4-5 as violent protests continued in the Valley following the killing of Hizbul militant Burhan Wani in July.

"Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will lead an all-party delegation to Jammu and Kashmir on September 4-5, 2016," an official statement issued here today said.

It said during the visit, there will be interaction with the Governor and Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir.
