Srinagar, May 28 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the construction of the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) hit a major roadblock after Indian army claimed that the building compromises the security of the adjacent military garrison and the boundary wall of the building touches the garrison’s boundary wall.
The Indian army stated this in a review meeting chaired by the Divisional Commissioner of Kashmir, P K Pole.
“The Divisional Commissioner of Kashmir was informed in the meeting by the Brig Arun Yadav that the proposed AIIMS campus hugs the military garrison and has a common boundary wall of 1.7 kms. NoC guidelines issued by the Indian Ministry of Defence on May 18, 2011 stipulate that no construction within 100 meters and no buildings above the four storey within 500 meters from the periphery of the military garrison can be made,” the minutes of the meeting read. “There are ten multi-storey buildings (10 to 38 meters height) which directly overlook the sensitive installation of contagious military garrison.”
In the meeting, the army claimed that no information with respect of AIIMS construction and issuance of NOC with Indian army’s Victor Force was given by Civil administration till January 15, 2021 despite various communications and meetings held with them.
