New Delhi: Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag will visit Jammu and Kashmir on Friday to review the security situation in the unrest-hit Valley.

Suhag will undertake a one-day visit to Srinagar to review the security situation in the hinterland of the Valley and along the Line of Control, Army sources said. The Army chief will be briefed about the security grid along the Line of Control and anti-militancy operations in the hinterland by senior army officers and local formation commanders, the sources said.

Over 70 people have died and more than 10,000 injured in the clashes followed by the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on 8 July.
