After it was widely reported that India-China border tensions had eased after both India and China had pulled back their troops, Indian news agency – ANI revealed that the Chinese army has again deployed its troops all along the 4,000 km long Line of Actual Control (LAC).

India has also marshalled its fighting formations in retaliation along the Indo-Sino border in Himachal Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh.

There are about 10,000 Chinese soldiers deployed along with heavy weaponry including tanks and long-range artillery guns along the LAC in Ladakh only. India has countered by stationing its new ultra-light howitzers and other heavy weaponry on the locations where the Chinese army has formed the buildup.

As reported earlier by EurAsian Times (prior to the India-China border talks), Chinese soldiers intensified control measures in the Galwan valley of Aksai Chin, a region controlled by China and claimed by India.

The recent instance involved the two sides clashing in an ‘arm-less’ scuffle at the Naku La pass in North Sikkim, injuring soldiers from both sides. The Chinese military helicopters were later seen flying close to the LAC on several occasions. India has also dispatched troops along the border after reports of China pitching tents near river Galwan, which is a flashpoint that saw China’s aggression in 1962.

Tension started building up on the border until New Delhi and Beijing agreed to hold bilateral talks to resolve the issue.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Hua Chunying’s remarks came after New Delhi confirmed the “limited disengagement” between the troops of both sides. “Recently the diplomatic and military channels of China and India held effective communication on the situation along the border and reached a positive consensus,” she had stated.

“The two sides are following this consensus to take actions to ease the situation along the borders,” she added.

“The Chinese army has done military build-up not only just in Ladakh but also in other sectors including Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh wherever it shares borders with us. The build-up includes troops and heavy weaponry which are deployed in rear positions,” ANI quoted government sources.

It further said that Indian troops have also been deployed along the LAC. “The reserve brigades of a Corps with an area of responsibility including Himachal Pradesh have gone up to the Ladakh sector to provide backup and cushion to the 3 Infantry Division based in Karu there. Additional fighting formations have also been moved forward to the border locations in Himachal Pradesh where Chinese choppers had shown up in April,” the report claimed.

According to the sources that ANI quoted, the Chinese buildup started with unusual activity at multiple locations including Ladakh. “They came right above the new bridge being built by the Indian army to connect the all-important Durbuk-Shyok-Daulat Beg Oldie road with the Patrolling point 14 in the Galwan area.

The chopper had flown close to the Indian territory in Himachal Pradesh’s Kinnaur district and Barahoti in Uttrakhand,” the report said. In Uttrakhand, Chinese troops are also deployed in the Harshil-Barahoti-Nelang Valley as Chinese choppers were seen there too along with foot patrolling soldiers.
