New Delhi: At a time when India is alert to the possibility of two front war, Army chief General MM Naravane on Monday visited forward areas in Jammu-Pathankot (Punjab) region to review the current security situation and operational readiness of the troops deployed on ground along the international border with Pakistan.

Army Chief was received in Jammu by Western army command chief Lt Gen RP Singh, GoC Rising Star Corps  Lt Gen Upendra Dwivedi and Maj Gen VB Nair, GoC Tiger Division.

Army chief was briefed by Lt Gen Dwivedi on the operational preparedness, up-gradation of security infrastructure and the internal security matters.
