Centre deploys 25,000 more troops in Kashmir

The central government is sending 25,000 more soldiers in the Kashmir Valley within a week of the decision to deploy 10 thousand additional security forces in Jammu and Kashmir . According to official sources, the troops have started reaching the valley since early morning on Thursday and they are being deployed in different parts of the state. 

After the deployment of such a large number of soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir, different types of speculation have started. Last week the government had sent the 100 companies of security forces in Jammu & Kashmir. In which 50 companies of CRPF, 30 companies of SSB, 10 companies of ITBP and 10 comoanies of BSF have been deployed in J&K. One company comprises about 100 personnel.
