Indian Army takes control over heights at Finger 4 along Pangong lake

Amid standoff with China in Eastern Ladakh, Indian Army has taken control over heights overlooking the Chinese Army positions at Finger 4 along Pangong lake.

According to sources, operations were carried out along with the preemptive actions to take control of the heights near the Southern bank of Pangong lake around August end. The Chinese army was sitting there from around April-May but refused to disengage from there.

Aimed at keeping the communication lines open between the two sides, Armies of India and China today held interactions at Brigade Commander-level and Commanding Officer level in Eastern Ladakh.

The Indian Army on Sept 8 had said, despite India’s commitment to disengage and de-escalate the situation on the Line of Actual Control (LAC), China is continuously undertaking proactive activities to escalate the situation.

Indian Army said that on September 7, Chinese soldiers fired in the air while attempting to close in on Indian position across LAC. PLA blatantly violated the agreements and carried out aggressive manoeuvres.
