The Pentagon has claimed that China has settled in the disputed area adjacent to India’s Arunachal Pradesh. However, an Indian official said that no civilians were staying in the settlements built on the Indo-China border. He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture and that his confession had been obtained through torture.
According to the Times of India, the state government last year appointed DJ Borah as an additional deputy commissioner in the Upper Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh. At the end of one of the observations, he said, they did not think there were civilians in the disputed area.
The official said, ‘We saw multiple large installations in the disputed area. They seemed to be built for military use. I was told that when the Chinese troops occupied the area in 1982, they had only a few outposts. ‘
According to the Times of India, where the Chinese army built the facility, there used to be an Indian outpost. However, it was removed after the Sino-Indian war in 1962. At that time the outpost was called ‘Maza Camp’. After the area was declared disputed, the camp was relocated within four to five kilometers of Indian territory.
Areas of the disputed area now occupied by the Chinese military were largely owned by the Tagin community, according to the Times of India. Until 2016, the community had exclusive ownership of the entire land in the region.
After Ladakh and Uttarakhand, the Chinese army entered Indian territory in Arunachal Pradesh. Last week, they crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) near Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh and entered India. According to Indian Defense Ministry sources, about 200 Chinese troops had entered. The Chinese army was trying to break a bunker.
The Indian army quickly went there. They captured some Chinese soldiers. After that, the army officials of the two countries met there. The problem is solved. The armies of the two countries have returned to their previous positions. But the Indian and Chinese armies were facing each other for hours. There is also a slight physical force. However, neither side suffered any casualties. No one was seriously injured or killed.
Allegations of repeated intrusions
On May 5 last year, there was a fierce clash between the two countries’ armies in Ladakh. India had alleged that Chinese troops had invaded Indian territory and occupied the area. And China complained that Indian troops had invaded its territory. Several Indian soldiers were killed. The Chinese army also died. The tension in Ladakh has been going on for a long time. Then the incident of crossing the small border is going on.
According to PTI, on August 30, 100 Chinese troops entered the Barhoti area north of Nanda Devi within five kilometers of the Indian border. Since there is ambiguity in many places along the Indo-China border, small groups occasionally enter each other’s territory while on patrol. But the entry of a hundred soldiers was exceptional.
Then this time the incident took place in Boom La and Youngse area of Arunachal.
Why this incident?
Retired Indian Army Lieutenant General Utpal Bhattacharya has previously worked in the sector in Arunachal Pradesh. He told Deutsche Welle: “There is no comparison between what happened in Arunachal Pradesh and what happened in Ladakh. The place where this incident took place is near Boom La Sector Tawang. There is a difference between the two countries’ perceptions of borders. So their patrol party entered the Indian border. Then they were told to leave. “Once the Indian border guards enter their area, they are told to leave.”
Utpal Bhattacharya said, “We think that is our area. They say it is their area. This time, when the Chinese army entered, India dealt harshly with the situation. Some have also been arrested. Usually there is a colonel level flag meeting. The problem is solved after that flag meeting. ”
According to Lieutenant General Bhattacharya, “China actually wants to show a one-upmanship. That’s where the problem comes in. ” The Chinese navy is very strong and can compete with the United States. But the same cannot be said of their army. It was in this booming sector that they were beaten by the Indian Army in 1986.
According to him, ” Xi Jinping thinks that the PLA forces have now become a bit of a chocolate soldier. So maybe that’s what they’re doing. “
