"The Chief of Army Staff, General Suhag visited Headquarters Northern Command at Udhampur today", a senior Army officer said.
The visit comes a day after Pakistan said the Indian army killed seven of its soldiers in shelling.
General Suhag exhorted the troops to be alert against any inimical designs and be aggressive in their approach.
The General interacted with the Formation Commanders and reviewed the situation along the Line of Control (LoC) as well as internal security situation in the Command theatre, he said.
The firing at the LoC has intensified ever since the surgical strike of September 29.
