Srinagar: Northern Army Commander Lt Gen D Anbu Monday visited the Units in North Kashmir to review the prevailing security situation, defence sources said.
The visit of the senior commander comes a day after Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militants stormed a CRPF camp in South Kashmir’s Lethpora area leaving five security men dead.
“During the visit, Gen Anbu was briefed about the winter preparedness and measures taken to meet the challenges posed by weather,” a defence spokesman said.
He said that the Army Commander interacted with the troops on ground and conveyed his greetings for the New Year 2018 and complimented them for their determination and alertness in Counter Terrorist and LC Operations in 2017.
“The commander asked them to continue to face new challenges with utmost professionalism,” the spokesman added.
