Army chief to visit J&K

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

Jammu: Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat will arrive in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday to visit forward positions on the Line of Control (LoC), Defence Ministry officials said.

General Rawat would also chair a security review meeting here.

“After chairing the security review meeting, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) is likely to visit some forward locations on the LoC in Poonch and Rajouri districts,” the officials said.

The Indian and Pakistani Army have been engaging each other in frequent firing exchanges on the LoC in these two districts.

Although the LoC has remained calm for the last four days, India has blamed Pakistan for unprovoked, indiscriminate shelling and firing in the districts often targeting civilian facilities, including schools and villages.
