SRINAGAR: Northern Army Commander Lt Gen Ranbir Singh toured the Kashmir Valley on Monday to review the prevailing security situation in the region.
The situation has been tense in Valley after Centre revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5.
Lt Gen Singh visited formations in north and south Kashmir and was briefed about the current situation as also the recent counter-terrorist operations, a Defence spokesperson said.
He complimented the troops for the humanitarian assistance being provided to the locals and appreciated the actions taken by the units and formations in ensuring safety and well-being of the people.
The Army commander was accompanied by the Chinar Corps Commander Lt Gen KJS Dhillon.
“He extolled the troops for their relentless efforts in thwarting the adversary’s designs and maintaining constant vigil in the harshest terrain and weather,” the spokesman said.
The Army Commander reinforced the need to be fully prepared for the emerging security challenges and lauded the exemplary synergy amongst all security forces, the official said.
Lt Gen Ranbir Singh’s visit came two days after the Vice Chief of Army Staff (VCOAS) Lt Gen Devraj Anbu arrived in the Valley to review the prevailing security situation.
