Mumbai: India and China deployed additional troops over LAC as tensions built in some parts of Ladakh and Northern Sikkim a few days later the two violent face-offs.
A significant number of troops have been deployed in sensitive parts like Demchok, Daulat Beg Oldie, and areas of Galwan river and Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh.
The Chinese side has erected a number of tents in Galway Valley following alertness and reinforcement on the Indian side.
On 5th May around 250 Indian and Chinese army personnel clashed with iron rods, sticks, and stone-pelting in the Pangong Tso lake area in which soldiers on both sides sustained injuries.
In another incident, 150 Indian and Chinese military personnel were engaged in a face-off near Naku La Pass in the Sikkim sector on May 9. At least 10 soldiers from both sides sustained injuries in the incident, according to sources.
The Ministry of External Affairs has however been silent on the escalating tensions. After the two tensions, they started to maintain peace and tranquillity along the China Borders.
The India-China border dispute covers the 3,488-km-long Line of Actual Control, the de-facto border between the two countries.
