India-China Border: Fourth Attempt Of Chinese Infiltration In 11 Days
Gunshots were fired at night along the LAC in eastern Ladakh where Indian and Chinese troops are engaged in a military standoff.
On Tuesday (September 8), India foiled yet another attempt by relentless China to enter the Indian territory along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and forced the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops to turn back at their bases after they defied de-escalation talks. While the earlier incursion attempts were near Galwan and Chumar areas, this time the Chinese forces advanced towards the Pangong Tso near the LAC. Gunshots were fired along the LAC in eastern Ladakh where Indian and Chinese troops are engaged in a military standoff, said sources.
A source in the government confirmed this while adding that the situation has now been brought under control. This was the fourth attempt of Chinese infiltration at LAC. Since August 30, China is creating tension at LAC. A news agency quoted sources as saying, “In a significant development, Indian security forces foiled an attempt by the Chinese Army to transgress into the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control in the general area.” The report further stated, “In reaction, the Indian security forces also made precautionary deployments to prevent any intrusion.”
