China plays Punjabi songs on loudspeakers at finger 4
Ladakh : Chinese troops have set up loudspeakers at the forward posts located at Finger 4 and in a recent incident they were seen playing Punjabi music on them, probably to distract Indian soldiers who are keeping a close check on the Finger 4 area.
India and China had a recent incident near Finger 4 where more than 100 rounds were fired between the troops of the two sides on September 8.
"The first incident happened when the Indian Army preempted the Chinese attempt to occupy heights near Southern Bank of Pangong lake between August 29-31 while the second incident occurred near Mukhpari height on September 7," Army sources said.
In the third incident, which occurred on September 8 near the northern bank of Pangong lake, troops of both sides fired more than 100 rounds as the Chinese side was behaving in a very aggressive manner, Army Sources said.
Meanwhile, the defence and foreign ministers of the two nations had met in Moscow on the sidelines of SCO. In the meetings, the two sides were supposed to hold Corps Commander-level talks but the date and time have not yet been confirmed by the Chinese side, so far.
Several talks have been held between the nations since April-May but no significant results have been achieved yet.
India and China have been engaged in a standoff since April-May this year after transgressions by the Chinese Army in Kongrung Nala, Gogra and Finger area near Pangong lake.
Indian Army has now upped its preparedness manifold in the Ladakh sector to take on any aggressive moves by the Chinese Army in that sector.
