He appreciated that no complaint of human rights violations has been reported from any part of Kashmir Valley since the central government abrogated J&K’s special status in early August.

Doval visited various places in the valley accompanied by senior administrative and police officials.

This is his second visit to Kashmir Valley since the Centre announced its decisions on J&K on Aug. 5.

The NSA had camped in the Valley for 11 days after the Centre announced its decision to withdraw the special status of J&K. During that period, Doval had ensured there was no violence in the aftermath of the government's decision, officials said.
