The Indian Army has installed barbed wires at heights occupied by India along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), warning China not to enter its territory as the People's Liberation Army (PLA) has made several attempts to close in on Indian positions.

"This has been done to discourage them from coming close to areas we are occupying. It's a temporary obstacle to convey our intent to the aggressive manoeuvres by the Chinese," an official told India Today. "The message is loud and clear, don't come into our area."

With the Chinese troops firing gunshots in the air while trying to occupy Indian positions north of Rezang La on September 7, the Indian Army has also said that it will respond in a similar way.

Images of Chinese troops armed with a a knife-blade mounted on a pole, have gone viral. During the Galwan clash in June that claimed at least 20 Indian Army soldiers' lives, the Chinese were armed with iron-studded clubs, among other weapons.


As of now, at least five meetings at the Corps Commander-level have been conducted.

In the recent day, the Indian Army has dominated strategic heights both at the southern and the northern banks of the Pangong Lake, that have triggered tensions between India and China with the Chinese trying to dislodge the Indian troops.

A fresh build-up of Chinese troops occurred on the northern bank of the Pangong Lake soon after the face off on the southern bank on September 7.

"Movement of troops, increased numbers and new temporary defences being set up are clearly visible. The increase in deployment by Chinese has been corresponded by the Indian forces," a government official said.
