Chandigarh, Dec 11 (UNI) Western Command GOC-in-C Lt Gen T K Sapru today visited the Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre (PRC) at Mohali.
It was the first visit of the Army Commander after taking over the reins of the Western command.
During the visit, Gen Sapru expressed his deep concern about the welfare and well being of the disabled soldiers and promised all help to the PRC from the Western Command.
