Army, Air Force and Navy kept on high alert, NSA Ajit Doval to visit Jammu and Kashmir to take stock of the situation

Home Minister Amit Shah is also likely to tour the Valley after the end of the Parliament session

The National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval along with other senior security officials is expected to visit Kashmir valley today to review the on-ground situation.

This decision came even while the Army, Air Force and Navy kept have been kept on high alert to deal with any fallout of the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories and stripping of Article 370.

The Indian Armed forces, though are of the view that the repealing of Article 370 and what is preceding in Jammu and Kashmir is India’s internal matter, but are still keeping a hawk’s eyes on any reaction regarding this decision from Pakistan’s side and the responses of its Army on the Line of Control (LoC) and other areas.

As a precautionary measure, more troops have been sent to Kashmir. Close to 8,000 paramilitary troops were airlifted and moved in from Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, Assam and other parts of the country to the Kashmir valley. Troops induction still going on.

Ajit Doval had previously visited Srinagar in the last week of July, in the run-up to the decision to evoke Article 370 from the Valley.

After reviewing the situation, Doval had ordered to deploy over 25,000 security personnel in Jammu and Kashmir.

Hours before the announcement, section 144 CrPc was imposed in Srinagar with effect from 1200 Hrs on 5th August 2019 which shall remain in force till further orders.

It is notable here that the LoC between India and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir has been tensed since days as Pakistan has reportedly been attempting to send BAT personnel with Islamist terrorists into the valley. There have been reports of continuous shelling at the LoC.

Previously, the Amarnath Yatra had been cancelled following the discovery of American M-24 sniper and Pakistan made mine in a terrorist cache.

Mobile internet has been suspended in the Valley. As a preemptive measure, several political leaders, including Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah and Sajad Lone, have been put under house arrest while Army personnel have taken to the streets of Kashmir.

Schools and colleges in Jammu, Kishtwar, Resai, Doda and Udhampur districts were also ordered to remain closed on Monday.

Today, the Modi government came up with a historic move to change Kashmir’s destiny by revoking Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.

Apart from this, the govt has announced to bifurcate the border state into two separate Union Territories – one for Ladakh without a Legislative Assembly, and another for Jammu and Kashmir with a legislative assembly with curtailed powers.

Home Minister Amit Shah is also likely to tour the Valley after the end of the Parliament session.
