The Indian Army chief General MM Naravane left yesterday for a 2-day trip to Indian state Jammu region to review the overall security situation in the region. He will also visit forward areas near the Line of Control and would be briefed by top officials on ground on the ongoing operations there.
During the two-day visit, he will look into security in the region. The army chief will also go to forward posts near the Line of Actual Control.

As per the news sources for the last few days, there were many clashes between militants and Indian Army. On the one hand, the army is clashing with the Pak militants. On the other hand, militants are killing foreign workers.
Also on Sunday, militants killed two workers from Indian state Bihar.
The United Liberation Front of Jammu and Kashmir (ULF), the new organization of Lashkar-e-Taiba, claimed full responsibility for the incident.
In all, 11 civilians and several army personnel lost their lives in the valley.
According to analysts, Pakistan wants militants to infiltrate the Kashmir Valley before winter. Because of the snowfall in the winter season, the canyons of Pirpanjal become inaccessible. As a result, the infiltration of militants from across the border was practically blocked at that time. So the ISI and the Pak army started sending terrorists to Kashmir from August.
