By ET News

With the ceasefire between the armies of India and Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) entering the 100th day, Army chief Gen Manoj Mukund Naravane would be in Srinagar on a two-day visit starting Wednesday to review the situation on ground along the border and the counter-terrorist operations in the valley.

The latest ceasefire agreement between India and Pakistan had started in the last week of February after talks between the director generals of military operations of both armies and it has been observed by both sides since then.

“The Army chief would be in Srinagar to review the situation on ground along with the top military commanders there from the 15 Corps which looks after both counter-terrorism and counter-infiltration operations in the valley,” Army sources told ANI.

The chief would also be visiting the forward positions in the valley to review the operational preparedness of troops to tackle any possible attempts by the terrorists to carry out infiltration, they said.

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval played a key role in the ongoing ceasefire agreement which has resulted in peace on both sides of the LoC for such a long period in the last many years.
