Jammu, Oct 21: Army chief General Bipin Rawat said on Saturday the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir is improving and the recent action by militants only proves their frustration. Speaking to media on the sidelines of a function in which he presented the President’s Standard to 47 Armoured Regiment here, the army chief said radicalization is a global phenomenon whose spread in Jammu and Kashmir is being addressed seriously. “Efforts are on to wean away youth from radicalization in Kashmir which is being spread through social media sites”, he said. He said the army, paramilitary forces and Jammu and Kashmir Police were trying to wean away the youth from radicalization in the state. Replying to a question on ceasefire violations on the Line of Control (LoC), General Rawat said the launching pads of terrorists are active across the border as Pakistan has not dismantled the terror infrastructure there.
