New Delhi, May 20 (Calcutta Tube) Delhi Lieutenant Governor Tejender Khanna Thursday discussed the law and order situation with the capital’s Home Secretary G.S. Patnaik.

‘The meeting was a routine affair to discuss law and order situation in the city. Afzal Guru’s matter was not discussed,’ the official told IANS.
