NEW DELHI: The Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) is planning to build new posts along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) to foil future incursions of Chinese PLA into the Indian territory.
Areas in the Yangtze plateau in Arunachal Pradesh, where the latest clash between the Indian Army and the PLA had taken place on December 9, are among the places where these new ITBP order posts are to be built.
China and India have differing perceptions of the LAC at many places. In certain areas in the Tawang sector and both sides routinely come face to face while patrolling areas up to their claim lines.
“Tawang is one of the most sensitive sectors on the Line of Actual Control. During a meeting recently, the ITBP brass discussed several measures, including additional outposts”an ITBP official told Blitz India.
Even under extreme cold conditions, he said, our men remain in a high state of alertness and keepa close watch on the frontier round-the-clock. “During the latest encounter, our troops fought hard and foiled the transgression bid by the Chinese,” he added.
Sources said the Chinese Army had shown “brazen” aggression for months in the Tawang sector, forcing Indian troops to warn them off with placards and loudspeakers, in the lead-up to the December 9 incursion bid.
