Ladakh: Around Chinese 300 soldiers have reportedly surrounded some 100 soldiers of India in Chumur area in Ladakh. As per media reports Indian soldiers are not being allowed to move.
The latest incident follows yesterday’s incident where Chinese troops were reportedly seen camping 500 metres into the territory under Indian control in Demchok area of Ladakh. The Chinese soldiers had reportedly put up tents there.
“What makes the matter more serious is the fact that the face-off is happening well inside the Indian territory”, a Zee News report reads.
“As regards the Demchok incident, reports said some 30 Chinese soldiers have intruded 500 metres into Demchok area and put up tents there since September 11”.
To confront the Chinese troops, around 70 Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel have been deployed in the area.
As per media reports, both the countries have sent more soldiers to the face-off site at Demchok.
Last month, Chinese troops had reportedly entered almost 25 kilometres into Indian controlled area at Burtse in Ladakh.
In 2014 alone, 334 incidents of Chinese troops’ intrusion into Indian border have been reported.
The incidents come just days ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India.
Both countries have long pending differences on demarcation of boundaries.
