Expecting a surge in violence in the coming weeks in restive Kashmir Valley, the Army is reviewing its deployment pattern and will make changes in the counter-insurgency grid to deny militants take advantage of the ongoing turmoil. The Valley remained shut for the 65th day on Sunday with authorities deploying security personnel in Srinagar and other places to maintain law and order.

According to a report by the Times of India, Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag arrived in the north Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir on 9 September to review the situation as there were high chances of another round of protests flaring up.

The clashes took place even as curfew was again imposed in many parts of unrest hit valley today.
