LEH/NEW DELHI, Nov 2 � Chinese People�s Liberation Army (PLA) recently made a two-pronged simultaneous incursion by sending its troops into Indian waters in the Pangong lake as well as five km deep into Indian territory through the land route in the same area, according to reports.
Official sources said today that according to reports received by security agencies, Chinese boats entered the Indian waters at the Pangong lake nestled in the higher reaches of Ladakh on October 22.
These incursions were simultaneously backed by Chinese troops on the road built alongside the Pangong lake which took place in eastern Ladakh and on the northern bank of Pangong Lake, located 168 km from Leh, the sources said.
However, alert troops of the ITBP noticed the movement of the Chinese troops and intercepted them at the imaginary line that is supposed to be the Line of Actual Control in the lake. � PTI
