No Army post will be removed: GOC
SHABIR IBN YUSUF
Srinagar, May 4: Army on Friday said that none of their posts would be removed from any part of the Kashmir Valley.
“We are not removing any post from anywhere in the Valley,” the General Officer Commanding 15 Corps Lt General SA Hasnain told Greater Kashmir.
He said that removing of any camp can prove detrimental for security interests in long run. “Infiltration is always there and we have to be alert,” the GOC added.
General Hasnain claimed that Army has identified various areas across the Valley for demining. “The demining is going on at Villgam and Pujwa areas of Handwara in frontier district of Kupwara. We have identified other areas also and these will be demined in near future,” he added.
Pertinently, soon after the eruption of militancy in 1990, a large number of Army camps, were established in every nook and corner of the Valley to foil the militant attacks. These camps were located in schools, hospitals and other government buildings. Some of the schools and hospitals were vacated after the government provided forces with alternate accommodation. However, force personnel still continue to occupy many government buildings.
