The infrastructure built comprised hardened shelters for troops and defensive positions at the Y-junction.

At this junction, the Galwan River takes a sharp bend towards its meeting point with Shyok River.

Galwan River meets Shyok River and is approximately 1km away from PP-14 area.

Patrolled by Indian troops for decades, the area will no longer be viable.

Earlier, Chinese soldiers were observed carrying iron rods in their backpacks in the eastern sector to build their infrastructure.

An undisclosed source was quoted by the Economic Times as saying: “PLA soldiers come prepared, and routinely break the protocol that there will be no use of force during face-offs.

“But when they get hurt in the ensuing scuffles, they wrongly accuse Indian soldiers of breaking the protocol.”

This comes after the escalating border tensions between the countries in Galwan Valley, Ladakh.

In the past week, the Chinese Army has moved around 200 vehicles into the Galwan area.

The two countries also held diplomatic talks to disengage forces to restore peace and tranquillity in border areas.

However, despite several rounds of military-level talks, they have been unable to break the deadlock.

Border clashes between the countries have resulted in the death of 20 Indian soldiers.
