SRINAGAR, Aug 29: Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat is all set to visit Srinagar on Friday to review the security situation and preparedness of security forces to deal with the situation in Kashmir valley.
This is Army Chief's first visit to Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370 from the state.
It is worth mentioning that the Army Chief's visit comes at a time when Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik and Ministry of External Affairs were stressing that normalcy is returning to the Valley.
On Wednesday, Malik had said that there had been no civilian casualties in Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370.
“We managed to keep things under control during Panchayat elections, Lok Sabha elections and even now. Every Kashmiri life is valuable to us, we don't want the loss of even a single life. There has been no civilian casualty, only the few who got violent are injured,” he had said in a press conference here.
Security was beefed up in the region after the abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the state into two Union Territories -- Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh on August 5.
