In yet another case of infiltration in India, Chinese troops on Monday entered 6 km inside Indian border near Lake Pangong in Ladakh, according to the Intelligence report.

The Indian Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) has prepared a detailed report about the Chinese infiltration and submitted it to the Home Ministry.

However, this is not the first time that China has made such an intrusive effort to enter in India. The PLA soldiers have been indulging in such un-military-like practices for a long time.

Earlier, China had penetrated 20 times India-China border in last few months.

According to the ITBP report, China intruded on 28 February, 7 March and 12 March 2018 through vehicles near North Pangong Lake.

Moreover, ITBP is also staging protests against this infiltration of China. The Chinese army infiltrated at 3 places near Pangong Lake.

Last year, on August 15, Chinese PLA soldiers invaded the same area of Pangong. However, the Indian troops had foiled the incursion bid of Chinese PLA soldiers along the banks of Pangong lake in Ladakh which reportedly resulted in stone pelting that caused minor injuries to people on both sides.

In 2018 too, Chinese soldiers tried to engage with the ITBP in northern Pangong, which the ITBP had countered.

The Asian rivals have been locked in a serious looking border standoff in Doklam plateau for the last one year and a series of rhetoric full of perils is on from the Chinese side while India has maintained its stand to resolve the issue peacefully.
