Army chief briefs Kashmir governor, Abdullah on Chinese incursion

Jammu :  Army chief General Bikram Singh met Jammu and Kashmir Governor N.N. Vohra and Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Tuesday and discussed Chinese incursions into Indian territory in Ladakh region.

Gen. Singh assured Vohra and Abdullah that the situation would be tackled.

The army chief is on a two-day visit of Jammu region, which began Tuesday.

His visit comes in the wake of the Chinese troops setting up a post inside Indian territory, about 10 km from the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de-facto border between India and China. The Chinese has set up the post April 15.

During his meetings with the governor and the chief minister, Gen. Singh gave a detailed account of the situation on the LAC and how the Chinese troops had entered Indian territory at Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) area on the intervening night of April 15 and 16.

The Chinese post is being manned by almost 50 men round the clock.

The Indian Army has positioned itself 50 meters from the Chinese post. Despite flag meetings between the local commanders, the situation has not defused.

The Jammu and Kashmir government has written to the central government voicing its concern over the intrusion.

A J&K state government spokesperson said that during his meeting with Abdullah, Gen. Singh discussed "various matters relating to the prevailing security situation in Jammu and Kashmir, including the situation in Leh".

General Officer Commanding-in-Chief Northern Command Lt. Gen. K.T. Parnaik and General Officer Commanding of 16 Corps, Lt. Gen. D.S. Hooda, were present in the meeting.

Gen. Singh also briefed the governor about the recently movements of Chinese in the Ladakh region, the spokesperson said.
