Another area near the Galwan Valley in Ladakh is occupied by China. That is why Indian troops are barred from entering and patrolling hundreds of square kilometers.
On Saturday, India accused Chinese forces of occupying the area near Patrol Point (PP) 14 in Ladakh. However, no infrastructure has been built in the area yet.
The news was reported by Anandabazar newspaper quoting Indian Army sources.
According to the report, China has strengthened its military presence in the entire area, including point 14 near Ladakh. As a result, Indian troops are unable to reach patrol points 10, 11, 11, 12 and 13.
On June 15, a bloody clash broke out between the two sides as they tried to build a Chinese military infrastructure at PP-14 in the Galwan Valley. It killed 20 Indian soldiers. 76 more Indian soldiers were seriously injured.
After that incident, the Chinese forces withdrew from the patrolling point 14. But in the last 10 days, the Chinese army has re-established its base there.
The Anandabazar newspaper further reported that the Chinese have now occupied a large area near PP-14. These include the Bottle-Neck Point or Y Junction Patrolling Point, which is in India but is currently occupied by China.
PP 10, 11, 11A, 12 and 13 are the roads from that Y junction point. But the Indian army is not able to reach the area as the Chinese troops are stationed there. As a result, India has had to close surveillance in hundreds of square kilometers.
The Indian Army barracks at Brutus in Ladakh is 7 km from the Y junction point and the Darbuk-Shayok-Daulat Beg Oldi road passes over the town, which is a source of headache for China.
