Indian Army and Air Force put on high alert, Delhi Metro on red alert following govt’s announcement on Article 370

Days before the announcement by Home Minister Amit Shah in the parliament, 25,000 security personnel had been ordered to be deployed in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Modi Government has come 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.

Following the revoking of Article 370 and other decisions announced by Government of India, the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force have been put on high alert, reports ANI.

Moreover, the Delhi Metro has also been put on a Red Alert. “As advised by security agencies, a red alert has been imposed on the entire DMRC network. Please allow extra time in security checks,” the DMRC said.

Meanwhile, 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.

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.
