Army Chief to visit Kashmir on Tuesday to review security situation

Army Chief General Manoj Naravane is likely to visit Kashmir on Tuesday to review the ongoing security situation and counter-militancy operations in the valley, Army sources said.
General Naravane will visit the Indian Army positions on the LoC to be briefed by the senior military commanders on the overall situation in the Valley.
Jammu and Kashmir DGP Dilbag Singh had opined that Pakistan has increased ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) but affirmed that forces have been successful in thwart their infiltration attempts and even if some succeed in infiltrating, they would be eliminated during the counter-militant operations.
"Ceasefire violations from Pakistan side have increased, however, we have been successful in foiling their infiltration bids. Still, some succeed in their infiltration attempt. These militants are neutralised during operations," Singh told media in Kathua.
Last week, the Army chief had visited Nagrota in Kashmir to review the situation due to ceasefire violations by Pakistan in the Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
He had then given clear instructions to the commanders to give a befitting reply to Pakistan army in case of provocation by them on LoC. Also in the last month, General Naravane accompanied by former Northern Army Commander Lt Gen Ranbir Singh had visited forward areas along LoC in Rajouri.
Pakistani troops made the highest number of ceasefire violations in 2019, amounting to over 3000 instances which means nine ceasefire violations on average per day. There have been 3,289 ceasefire violations by the Pakistan Army along the Indo-Pak border in 2019. Incidents of ceasefire violations increased after the abrogation of Article 370.
