Army chief General Dalbir Singh on Tuesday reviewed the security situation along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir and asked troops to be alert in the wake of heightened tension along the border.

“The Chief of Army Staff, General Dalbir Singh visited Headquarters Northern Command at Udhampur today”, a senior Army officer said. The visit comes a day after Pakistan said the Indian army killed seven of its soldiers in shelling.

The General interacted with Formation Commanders and reviewed the situation along the Line of Control as well as the internal security situation, the officer said.

The army chief commended soldiers for responding to ceasefire violations along the border. He also lauded the synergy and co-operation between the Northern Command, Air Force, Paramilitary Forces, Civil Administration, Central Police Organisations operating in the region.

The firing at the LoC has intensified ever since the surgical strike on September 29.
