Srinagar, August 31, 2020 (PPI-OT): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar-Leh highway has been closed for civilians with immediate effect amid fresh standoff between the troops of the Chinese and Indian armies in Ladakh. The highway has been closed in view of what the Indian Army claimed fresh provocative military movements by the Chinese troops. It added that the road will remain open only for the defence forces and vehicles.
Earlier, as per a statement by the Indian Army, China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers have made fresh ‘provocative military movements’ on the southern bank of Pangong Tso on 29-30 August. The statement claimed that the Chinese Army had tried to ‘transgress’ into Indian areas using sizeable number of troops but Indian Army pre-empted the Chinese attempt and foiled their move.
