Antony reviews security situation with service chiefs

New Delhi, June 1 (Calcutta Tube) Defence Minister A.K. Antony met the three service chiefs here Tuesday to discuss security situation in the country, an official said.

‘Antony reviewed all dimensions of the security situation in the country at a high-level meeting lasting about 90 minutes,’ defence ministry spokesperson Sitanshu Kar said.

The meeting was attended by army chief Gen. V.K. Singh, air chief Air Chief Marshal P.V. Naik, navy chief Admiral Nirmal Verma and Defence Secretary Pradeep Kumar, said Kar.

The meeting comes three days after Antony said India apprehended more infiltration attempts in Jammu and Kashmir from across the border in the summer.

‘During winter time also, there were serious attempts of infiltration. This summer, we are expecting more attempts of infiltration,’ Antony said Saturday.

He was commenting on reports suggesting that more bunkers were being built by the Indian Army near the Line of Control (LoC) – the de facto border with Pakistan in Kashmir.
