Army Chief General Bipin Rawat Tuesday arrived here to review the security situation in the wake of the militant attack on Amarnath Yatris.
The Army chief will be briefed by top Army officials in the Valley about the overall security situation in Kashmir, especially in the wake of the attack last night in Islamabad.
“The Army chief has arrived here in Srinagar and will be interacting with the Director General of Police (S P Vaid) later in the day. Gen Rawat might also hold a meeting with DG CRPF,” an Army official said.
Seven Amarnath pilgrims were killed in a suspected militant attack in Islamabad last night.
The militants attacked an armoured car of the police at 8.20 pm yesterday. When the police fired back, the militants fled, firing indiscriminately, the official said.
