Using drones, teams from the Indian Army are overseeing the dismantlement of military infrastructure by Chinese troops at Pangong Lake in Eastern Ladakh
Bengaluru: Using drones, teams from the Indian Army are overseeing the dismantlement of military infrastructure by Chinese troops at Pangong Lake in Eastern Ladakh.
Further, the disengagement process at both northern and southern banks of the Pangong Lake is expected to be complete by February 20.
The Indian Army team along with the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) team will physically verify and re-verify disengagement at Pangong Lake. "It will be a joint inspection team, both from Indian Army and Chinese PLA," said a senior government officer, as quoted by Swarajya.
Indian Army teams will use drones and high-resolution cameras to check and record dismantlement of military infrastructure, especially created along Pangong Lake by Chinese troops.
India and China have been at loggerheads since the Galwan clashes in June 2019
A note on the incident:
It all began when Indian soldiers dismantled a Chinese tent at Patrol Point 14, which is close to the mouth of the Galwan river. The tent had been dismantled following a meeting between Lieutenant General Harinder Singh, who commands the Leh-based XIV Corps, and Major-General Lin Liu, the head of the Xinjiang military district.
But just within two days, it should be noted that the PLA set up a fresh tent at Patrol Point 14. This was in clear violation of the agreement.
Another intelligence report by the US had claimed that a senior Chinese commander ordered the attack against Indian soldiers.
