Amid 35A rumours, Centre rushes in 25,000 more troops to J&K

Aug 02, 2019 08:16 IST

Even as speculation remain rife over Article 35A in J&K, the centre is rushing about 25,000 more paramilitary personnel to the Valley, as part of a massive security drive, NDTV reported. The troops started arriving on Thursday morning and are being inducted in various parts of the state, the report said quoting official sources. The government had last week send about 10,000 additional soldiers to strengthen the counter-insurgency grid in Kashmir. The decision to send the troops came after NSA Ajit Doval returned from a two-day visit to Kashmir valley last week.
