Tensions between India and Pakistan have increased after the Narendra Modi government scrapped the special status of Jammu and Kashmir by diluting the Article 370. After the Modi government’s move, Pakistan downgraded bilateral relations with India. Ceasefire incidents by Pakistani Army also increased after the abrogation of the Article 370 by India. According to media reports, Pakistan had violated ceasefire over 200 times since then.
Last month, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat reviewed the readiness of security agencies against ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir during his two-day visit to the Kashmir Valley. Gen Rawat visited the LoC along with Northern Army Commander Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh.
