Troops building-up spotted in the Chinese territory opposite Arunachal Pradesh’s Asaphila Tuting axis, Chang Tze and Fishtail-2 sectors, whiich is almost 20 km from the Indian territory, according to India Today.


As stated by sources, it is likely that China may seek to execute more intrusions in these areas and seize some dormant lications. They stated that the Indian army are in every respect ready to impede such attempts and the forces have reinforced their strength accordingly.

As per sources, the movement of Chinese troops in their depth areas has been noticed in the past few days making use of roads built by them in the area. Taking a look at the Chinese activities in the area, the Indian side has also intensified its positions on the LAC.

The Chinese Army patrols have also been seen on a regular basis and are coming very near to areas belonging to India, sources said. They said the country's top security brass has also held dialogues regarding the state of affairs in and around the Doklam area where the Chinese army has built up significantly in the recent past.

A few year ago, India and China were engaged in a major stand-off in the Doklam plateau area where the Chinese were building roads on Bhutanese soil up to the Jhamphiri ridge, threatening Indian positions in the Siliguri corridor.

Couple of years back, India and China had been embroiled in a major stand-off in the Doklam plateau area where the Chinese were constructing roads up to the Jhamphiri ridge, threatening Indian positions in the Siliguri corridor.

Not long ago, Indian army occupied heights overlooking the Chinese positions at Finger 4 along the Pangong Tso lake in eastern Ladakh and the heights near Spangur gap on southern bank of the lake.

These operations were held as pre-emptive actions to hold heights near the southern bank of Pangong Lake around August end. The actions by the Indian army shook the Chinese who then turned to firing in the air, which marked the first reported firing incident on the LAC in the last 45 years.
