China stops Indian Army from patrolling territory

Amid a spate of incursions by China in Ladakh, its troops are also resorting to tactics like preventing Indian Army from patrolling posts in this sector along the border, which is well within India’s territory. In what is being described as an aggressive approach by China, the tactics have come to the fore in the wake of yet another incident last week when Indian troops launched its patrol “Tiranga” from the Trade Junction area in north of Ladakh for two posts located 14 km up in the higher reaches along the Line of Actual Control. The Army personnel were stopped by Chinese troops who claimed it was their territory, official sources said on Sunday.
