Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat today met National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and apprised him of the situation in Kashmir valley. The meeting comes in the midst of a raging controversy following surfacing of a video showing a man being tied to an army jeep as a shield against stone-pelters during polling for the Srinagar Lok Sabha seat. Sources said the Army Chief, during the 30-minute-long meeting, apprised Doval of the situation in the Kashmir valley besides briefing him about overall security scenario in the state. The video triggered a public outcry in the valley, prompting the civil and army authorities to launch separate investigations.
