India has described the China's incursion into its land as a 'deep scar.' It is reported that China has reinforced its position across the Line of Actual Control and raised the real prospect of India losing access to 750 sq km in strategically crucial northern Ladakh.
While China on April 30 rebuffed India's plea to withdraw its troops, squatting 19 km inside Indian territory at Raki Nala in the Depsang Bulge area, fresh imagery from Indian spy drones has shown that the People's Liberation Army of China has already started using trucks to replenish supplies for over 30 soldiers stationed there.
The pictures, which also show that PLA is trying to convert the track there into a proper road, are transforming what the government had called a 'localised problem'' into a first-rate diplomatic crisis. The recognition has led to India starting to toughen its response, with Army Chief General Bikram Singh on May 1 briefing the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) on the 'counter-measures' possible.
