Hours after Indian Army released a statement detailing how Chinese soldiers tried to alter the status quo in complete violation of mutually agreed terms of disengagement along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh, top sources have indicated to NewsMobbile that over 500 Chinese troops attempted transgression on the southern bank of Pangong Tso Lake.
Indian Army sources said that the Chinese Army had attempted to transgress into Indian areas near Pangong Tso with over 500 troops. But, Indian Army was able to thwart their attempts and occupied these positions before the PLA soldiers could. Sources said no physical clashes took place between the two sides.
In a briefing, China however refuted all charges and said Chinese border troops “never cross the Line of Actual Control”. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said, “Both sides are in communication regarding the situation on the ground.”
The Indian Army said in a statement on Monday that Chinese troops carried out military movements over the weekend to change the status quo on their disputed border.
Incidentally, Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat had said last week India has “military options” to deal with China if military and diplomatic level talks did not get the desired results.
