The Indian Army has captured the height at Finger 4 at the Pangong lake near Ladakh to fend off Chinese attempts to take over Indian land.
The cameras and surveillance equipment have been removed after the Indian side occupied the fixed height within its territory. The Army occupied this height spot at Pangong Lake Finger 4 in Ladakh and uprooted the Chinese equipment. It was India's first offensive move after the clashes in May between the two countries. Thousands of soldiers took about six hours to claim the vantage points along the South bank of Pangong Tso. The Finger 4 feature on the North bank of Pangong Tso lake is located close to Chinese posts, just a few hundred meters from the Indian camp. It was the third time when the Chinese side tried to transgress into the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
The Indian Government accused Beijing of provocative military movements three months after Chinese troops annexed 60 square kilometers of Indian territory. The Chinese Foreign Ministry dismissed its troops crossed the disputed Line of Actual Control, which divides the two countries, and accused the Indian Army of conquering its territory.
