Defence Chief Anil Chauhan Reviews Security in Jammu Amidst Recent Terror Attacks

Chief of Defence Staff General Anil Chauhan conducted a comprehensive review of the security situation in Jammu during his day-long visit to the region. The visit comes in the wake of recent terrorist attacks that have raised concerns about the safety of the area and the operational readiness of security forces.

Gen Chauhan’s visit follows a similar review by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who assessed security measures and preparations for the upcoming Amarnath Yatra.

Upon his arrival at the 16 Corps headquarters in Nagrota, Gen Chauhan engaged in discussions with top military commanders, including the Northern Army Commander and the general officer commanding (GoC). The focus of these discussions was on evaluating the current security landscape and enhancing operational capabilities to tackle the escalating terrorism in the Jammu region.

Recent incidents, including attacks in Reasi, Kathua, and Doda districts, have resulted in tragic losses, including the lives of nine pilgrims and a CRPF jawan. Additionally, several security personnel and civilians have sustained injuries in these attacks.

The security forces have intensified their efforts to counter terrorism, as evidenced by the successful elimination of two suspected Pakistani terrorists in an encounter in Kathua district.

One of the recent attacks targeted a bus carrying pilgrims to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine, leading to a fatal plunge into a gorge and causing casualties among the passengers.

In separate incidents, terrorists targeted security installations, resulting in injuries to seven security personnel. These incidents underscore the persistent threat posed by terrorism in the region, necessitating continuous vigilance and proactive measures by security agencies.

Gen Chauhan’s visit and the ongoing security reviews reflect the government’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of residents and pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir. The discussions held during this visit are expected to contribute to a robust strategy aimed at addressing the challenges posed by terrorism effectively.
