JAMMU (PTI): Western Air Commander Air Marshal Pankaj Mohan Sinha on Saturday visited forward areas on the northern borders and lauded the strong counter-infiltration grid along the Line of Control (LoC), a defence spokesman said.

The Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief assured that the western command is vigilant for the aerial defence of the sensitive areas of various parts of North, North-West India, the spokesman said.

The spokesman said the Indian Air Force has kept almost all its air bases at a "very high level of readiness" to meet any eventuality relating to China and Pakistan.
