Jammu: Northern Army Commander Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi visited troops at remote operating bases (RoBs) in Rajouri and Kishtwar districts and reviewed the security situation and operational preparedness of troops, officials said on Friday.
This is the second visit of Lt Gen Dwivedi to the Rajouri sector to review the operational preparedness of troops after the April 20 terror attack in which five soldiers were killed in Bhatta Dhurian in Poonch.
Earlier, Lt Gen Dwivedi had visited Rajouri on April 26 and the attack site at Bhatta Dhurian on April 22.
Apart from reviewing operational preparedness on Thursday, he reviewed the security situation and commended the troops for their sustained efforts in dominating the area, they said.
The search operation to track down militants responsible for killings has been going on for the past 15th day.
More than 230 people were picked up for questioning in connection with the attack with most of them being let off, they said.
A six-person module has been busted which “gave full support” to militants involved in the killings of five soldiers, the officials said, adding they have been arrested.
