National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is in Srinagar to review the security situation.

There is an uneasy peace and seeming normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir, and there are no reports of agitation in the area with people going about their daily routine, a day after the abrogation of Article 370.

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is in Srinagar to review the security situation.

There was apprehension in some quarters that the huge influx of security forces might mean a crackdown in some areas, but there seems to have been no such move.

There is also a sentiment that local politicians might have had vested interests and took people for a ride with regard to Article 370.

The NSA is coordinating constantly with the security forces deployed in the Valley for tackling both external and internal attempts to disturb the peace on the ground.

Paramilitary deployments have been put into place to cater for internal disturbances.

The Centre on Monday scrapped Article 370 of the Constitution that conferred special status to Jammu and Kashmir and barred people from the rest of the country from buying property there.
