Lieutenant General BS Raju, who in 2017 headed the Army’s counter-insurgency division in volatile south Kashmir, will be the new General Officer Commanding of the Srinagar-based sensitive 15 Corps, top defence sources said.

The officer was instrumental in getting back local youth, who had taken up arms, into the mainstream.

Lt General Raju will replace highly decorated Army officer Lt Gen Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon, who was awarded the Uttam Yudh Seva Medal in recognition of his tenure as the Chinar Corps commander on Republic Day.
