Army Chief to review security situation in J&K today

15 July New Delhi: In the backdrop of recent terror activities in the state, Army Chief Gen Bikram Singh will be in Jammu and Kashmir today to review security situation with the state government and top military commanders.
Gen Singh will be in Srinagar today to hold discussions with Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and Governor N N Vohra, senior Army sources said.

During the visit, the Army Chief will be given a detailed briefing by the 15 Corps Commander Lt Gen Gurmit Singh on the activities of terrorists and the security situation in the Kashmir Valley, they said.

The visit comes after an increase in the militant activities in the state including an attack on an Army convoy on June 24 in which eight jawans were killed and several others injured.

The newly-appointed Northern Army Commander Lt Gen Sanjiv Chachra is also scheduled to brief the Army chief about the security scenario in the state.

The Army chief is also expected to be given a detailed briefing about the situation along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China.

The Army is taking several measures to strengthen its position at LAC in view of the recent incursion by the Chinese troops in Depsang valley and the situation in the Chumar sector.
