It is worth mentioning that PD Nitya, a senior police officer of Ladakh, had said in a report that “At present there are 65 PP (patrol points) from Karakoram Pass to Chumur, which are to be regularly patrolled by the ISF (Indian Security Force). Out of 65 PPs, our presence in 26 PPs (i.e. PP No. 5-) has ended, 5-17, 24-32, 37 due to no patrolling by the Indian security forces.
Report was filed last week
The report was filed last week at the annual conference of the country’s top police officers in Delhi, which was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. It added that, “Later, China would force us to accept the fact that these areas had not seen the presence of ISF or Indian nationals for a long time. The Chinese were present in these areas. “Buffer zones” are created around all such pockets by the Indian side. Ultimately, India’s control over these areas will end.”
“affects the morale of the army”
The officer wrote, “The PLA has taken advantage of the buffer zones in the de-escalation talks by placing its best cameras on the highest peaks and monitoring the movement of our security forces… They object to our movement even in the buffer zone.” .the Chinese claim it is their territory and then ask us to go back to create more ‘buffer’ zones.” PD Nitya had said in his report that this Chinese strategy was seen in the Galvan Valley. Where violent clashes took place in 2020, when 20 Indian soldiers and at least four Chinese soldiers were killed in a hand-to-hand fight. Nitya also said that marking areas out of bounds and keeping them empty also affects the morale of the army.
