New Delhi: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday spoke to Army Chief General Bipin Rawat over the situation following the ceasefire violation by Pakistan Army today in Jammu and Kashmir’s Tangdhar sector.

According to sources, the Defence Minister is personally monitoring the situation and has asked the Army Chief to keep updating him over it.
