New Delhi: According to latest reports, Chinese army has mobilised thousands of troops, heavy artillery within firing range of the Indian Army positions at Spanggur Gap on the southern bank of Pangong Tso in eastern Ladakh.
“Seeing the Chinese PLA troop and guns mobilisation, the Indian Army too made mirror deployments at Spanggur Gap. Both the countries’ troops and guns are within shooting range,” said a government official.
The situation along the Line of Actual Control is getting grim day by day despite several high-level military talks.
The Chinese army has offensively deployed its troops at Spanggur Gap, between Gurung Hill and Magar Hill, since August 30 after Indian troops got control of the ridge line along the southern flank of the Pangong Tso lake near Chushul in eastern Ladakh.
