On Saturday, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat stated that the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir is improving.

The security situation in Kashmir Valley is improving and what is happening just shows frustration of terrorists...We are following the governmental approach and NIA raids are a part of it, whatever success it achieved will emerge in future. 

The chief stated that radicalisation is a worldwide phenomenon, which the Army is addressing seriously.

The military has a task and we will continue to perform that task. The decision on any talks has to be decided politically.

“We had received instructions to shut down the Army Education Corps but even if it has to be done, it'll take time. The discussion is on,” said Rawat.

The Jammu and Kashmir government, police and administration are concerned about radicalisation. We are trying to ensure people are weaned away. Radicalisation is happening due to social media.
