Helicopters to hover over valley

A thick security blanket has been thrown around the city for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s maiden election rally in Kashmir as helicopters were deployed on Sunday for surveillance over the Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket Stadium, the venue of the event, and adjoining areas. “The security grid is in place and you are probably listening to some surveillance operation which is going on at top (helicopters),” General Officer Commanding of the Army’s 15 Corps Lt General Subrata Saha told reporters here. Several helicopters could be seen flying over the cricket stadium where Modi will address his first election rally in Kashmir on Monday. “So the grid is very much in place and it is highly effective. I do not think it will be appropriate for me to reveal anything more than that,” Lt Gen Saha said.
