Ladakh : Tensions remain following the clashes between Indian and Chinese armies over LAC in eastern Ladakh on the night of 29 August. The Indian Army has completely liberated the southern areas of Pangong Lake from the Chinese Army, foiling the infiltration attempt of Chinese troops. Along with this, deployment has been increased in the Pangong Lake area. According to army sources, the southern end is now completely under the control of the Indian Army. At the same time, a Brigade Commander level meeting was held in Chushul on Tuesday for the second consecutive day on both sides.
Military sources said that the Indian Army has taken a front in the highlands. The antics of the Chinese military are being closely monitored. Deployment of arms has also been done by both the countries.
According to army sources, the southern part covers the area of Finger Five and its vicinity, where the Chinese army was present at some places. Finger 5 also had Chinese troops stationed at high altitudes. But after the latest skirmish, the Indian Army has not only prevented him from moving forward but has pushed him further back. Sources said that this time the Indian Army has deployed at high altitudes in the southern part. This helped them to give a befitting reply to the Chinese army. The Chinese army is presently in the northern part of the lake, which is an area between finger-six to eight.
Doubt on China’s intentions
Sources said that both sides have increased the deployment of armies, tanks and additional weapons. The attitude of China in recent times and constantly increasing its lethal weapons near the LAC, forces to doubt his intentions. However, the Indian Army is ready for every challenge.
The army has also kept silent on the social media speculation that Indian soldiers have been held at an outpost in the Tibetan region. There is news of the killing of SFF jawan. However, the army says that this jawan has been killed by a landmine burst in 1962.
Army sources have also rejected China’s claim that Indian troops crossed the LAC and entered the Chinese border.
