Indian agencies are keeping a close watch on movements of PLA troops along the LAC, especially Arunachal Pradesh, where the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been moving troops in the depth areas.

“A strict vigil is being maintained in almost all the sectors with China from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh as the Chinese suffered a setback in the southern Pangong Tso area and may try to make fresh attempts to ingress into newer dormant areas,” ANI reported quoting sources.

In the Arunachal Pradesh sector, the Indian security forces have been keeping a close watch on Chinese military movements in the areas opposite the Asaphila area, and also opposite the Tuting axis and the Fish Tail-2 area, they said.

Looking at the Chinese activities in the area, the Indian side has also fortified its positions all these sectors.

The Chinese Army patrols are also being seen regularly and are coming very close to Indian areas.

The two countries have been engaged in a intense standoff since April-May as the Chinese remained defiant and refused to vacate areas in the Finger area and other friction points in the Eastern Ladakh area.

Multiple rounds of talks have also failed and no conclusive outcome has emerged out of military and diplomatic talks.
