Srinagar: The Government of India (GoI) has decided to deploy an additional 15, 000 armed forces personnel in the Kashmir Valley in wake of the recent killings in the Valley, official sources said on Thursday.

The troop deployment will be in addition to the forces deployed for the upcoming Amarnath Yatra, news agency IANS reported.

They said that the decision of deploying additional armed forces in the Valley has been taken in wake of the recent killing of a Kashmiri Pandit employee Rahul Bhat in Budgam district, last week.
