Chinese troops gathering since December 9

Although the Indian Army has confirmed the incident but is not sharing any details. According to the reports, there is a dispute about the border line on this LoC as well and there is often tension during patrolling. According to reports, a build-up of troops of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China was seen on December 9 along the LAC. The Indian Army personnel forbade them to do so and firmly stopped them from proceeding further. In the skirmish that followed, soldiers from both sides suffered injuries. Immediately after the clash, both the sides returned to their areas.

Following the incident, the Indian local commander held a flag meeting with the commander of the Chinese side and discussed ways to restore peace and stability under pre-arranged arrangements. Army sources said that there are some areas of LAC in Tawang where both sides claim their own and soldiers of both the countries patrol here. This trend is going on since 2006.

The reports said that Indian troops gave a befitting reply to Chinese troops in the face-off area in Tawang. The number of injured Chinese soldiers is far more than that of Indian soldiers. It has come to light that 20 Indian soldiers have been injured in the clash who have been brought to Guwahati for treatment. The Chinese came fully prepared with around 300 soldiers, but they did not expect the promptness from the Indian side. In fact, both India and China claim some areas along the LAC in the Tawang sector in Arunachal Pradesh. In such a situation, since 2006, such cases have been coming up frequently.
