NSA Doval in Kashmir, reviews security situation in hinterland, LoC

Agency News

Srinagar, Sep 26 : National Security Advisor(NSA) Ajit Doval has reviewed security situation in the hinterland and along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir valley, where uneasy calm continued, even as life remained crippled due to strike against scrapping of Articles 370 and 35 A on August 5.

The visit of Mr Doval to the valley holds significance, as it comes in the backdrop of intelligence inputs, warning of possible attacks on airbases and other military installations, including in Srinagar. The visit also holds importance as it comes just a day before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address at the UN General Assembly.

Official sources said that Mr Doval arrived in this summer capital on Wednesday. 'The NSA met top security officials and reviewed the overall security situation in the hinterland and along the LoC,' they said.

They said Mr Doval also reviewed the security of important military installations in the valley, besides airbase in Srinagar. 'Preparedness of troops to tackle any eventuality at the LoC was reviewed,' they added.

Mr Doval had come to the valley immediately after the special status of J&K was scrapped last month. During his 11 day visit, the NSA visited south Kashmir and downtown Srinagar, where he met security forces.

However, it was not immediately clear if the NSA will go to any part of the valley during his current visit. (UNI)
