revocation of AFSPA in Kashmir

At a time when calls for the revocation of AFSPA in Kashmir are getting shriller and protests held against the killing of a Bandipora youth by army, defence minister AK Antony will arrive in Srinagar on Saturday along with chief of army staff General Bikram Singh.


A defence ministry statement issued in Srinagar said that during his two-day visit, the minister would review the security situation in the Valley.

Antony would chair the unified headquarters meeting, besides meeting chief minister Omar Abdullah and governor NN Vohra.

"He will also be visiting and interacting with the troops deployed in forward locations," the statement said.
