Lt Gen Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon takes over as 48th Corps Commander

Sunday, 10 February 2019 | Pioneer News Service | Srinagar

Lt Gen Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon took over as the 48th Corps Commander of Srinagar based 15 Corps, responsible for counterinsurgency operations and management of Line of Control in Kashmir. He took over from Lt Gen AK Bhatt who has been moved to New Delhi as Military Secretary (MS) at Army Headquarters.

Defence spokesman said, “Lt Gen Bhatt’s tenure saw many successful operations neutralising the highest number of militants  in a year over a decade, wherein 259 militants were eliminated and other 64 local militants neutralised through apprehensions and surrenders”.

The spokesman said, “This achievement assumes a greater significance in view of imposition of Non-Initiation of Combat Operations during holy month of Ramzan, prolonged period of Amarnath Yatra for sixty days and peaceful conduct of Local Urban Bodies and Panchayat elections besides putting in place the strategy of swift and robust punitive response to Pakistan’s ceasefire violations and other provocations along LoC.”

The spokesman added that Lt Gen KJS Dhillon was commissioned in December 1983 and has had an illustrious military career spanning 35 years during which he has held varied prestigious command, staff and instructional appointments.
