Srinagar, Dec 5: To review the operational preparedness in north Kashmir, Inspector General, Border Security Force (BSF), Kashmir Frontier Ashok Yadav Tuesday visited the forward areas along the Line of Control (LoC) in frontier Kupwara district.
During the visit, he was briefed by commanders on the ground about the prevailing security scenario along the LoC.
The senior BSF officer in Kashmir also interacted with all ranks and commended them for their professionalism and dedication.
“Ashok Yadav IPS, IG @BSF_Kashmir visited the forward areas along the Line of Control #Kupwara ensuring strategic preparedness of the unit under extreme weather challenges.
