In the backdrop of the ongoing unrest in Kashmir, Chief of Army Staff General Dalbir Singh today visited several Army formations and reviewed the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Singh, accompanied by Northern Army Commander Lieutenant General D S Hooda, visited various formations of the Nagrota-based White Knight Corps, Defence Spokesman said.

Singh’s visit assumes significance in view of the unrest in Kashmir and mounting terrorist attacks in the Valley on security forces.

The Army Chief was briefed by 16 Corps GoC Lieutenant General RR Nimbhorkar about the preparedness of White Knight Corps in dealing with the emerging and dynamically changing security situation and the measures taken to thwart any misadventure by the inimical forces, he said.

The Corps Commander highlighted the measures adopted to counter infiltration through employment of an effective counter infiltration grid backed by synergised surveillance and intelligence backed operations.

Singh also visited Doda, Reasi and Rajouri wherein he was briefed on the operational readiness and security situation by the respective general officers.

Complimenting the formations for their unflinching efforts in handling the situation, Singh reiterated on the continued need to remain vigilant in order to counter the nefarious designs of the inimical elements.
