Amid reports about a surge in troops posted in Jammu and Kashmir in the past few weeks, the Home Ministry said today that deployment in the state was based on the assessment of the internal security situation and other considerations like the need to rotate soldiers. Sources in the ministry said 100 companies or 10,000 personnel of central forces were ordered for the state about a week ago and they were in the process of reaching their posts. This movement, the ministry believed, had led to speculation that extra forces were being sent to the Kashmir Valley.
