In what could be termed a strange method of messaging, a group of Chinese, backed by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) possibly, waved a banner to a group of Buddhists at Fukche on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.
The Jammu and Kashmir Administration has sought a report from the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) of the area. The incident occurred on July 6 as the locals on the left bank of the Indus were celebrating the Dalai Lama's birthday when the Chinese appeared on the other side of the Indus. Local residents claim Chinese came twice and intruded into the Indian territory.
Sources in the Army, however, denied this saying the Chinese did not cross the Indus, the de facto LAC in that area.
