SRINAGAR :  After witnessing the bulk of violence in South Kashmir’s districts of Palwama, Shopian, Kulgam and Anantnag, accounting more than 50 of the 70 deaths, the Army on Friday took up position for the first time since 2014.
Army chief himself reviewed the seriousness of the situation in the four worst affected districts and asked the soldiers to remain vigilant towards the needs of the administration seeking to regain orders after weeks of violence and protests.
Some people not wanting to be identified for obvious reasons are blaming the separatists and the last eight weeks of violence for redeployment of the Army.
According to sources, authorities may even suspend the Mobile and Internet service across the valley as  Joint Resistance Forces have issued a protest calendar and separatists have called for UN chalo (March) on Tuesday on Eid besides marching towards the Eidgah in downtown Srinagar.
These calls for protest rallies, particularly on Eid, have made State and Central government all too aware that there could be attempts to flare up the situation again.
Gen.Suhag also visited the LoC and reviewed the security situation and collaboration measures towards ensuring peace in the region, a defense spokesman said.
