The three are scheduled to visit the strategic base, situated about 35 km from the border with Pakistan, in the afternoon to get a first hand assessment of the ground situation after six terrorists were killed by security forces.

The visit comes at a time when the government has ordered a security audit of all vital defence installations in the country to find out the possible security loopholes.
