The Commander of Northern Army, Lt Gen Upendra Dwivedi, on Monday visited forward areas in Eastern Ladakh along the Line of Actual Control to review the security situation.

Earlier in the day, Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi interacted and lauded women ice hockey players at NSD Stadium in Leh on the sidelines of the LG Ice Hockey Championship which commenced on February 19, 2022.
