SEVEN INDIAN TROOPS KILLED IN ACCIDENT NEAR DISPUTED BORDER WITH CHINA​

At least seven Indian soldiers were killed and 19 others injured in a road accident in the remote Ladakh region, close to the country's disputed border with China, police said Friday.

The world's two most populous nations redirected tens of thousands of additional troops into the high-altitude Himalayan region after a deadly hand-to-hand battle in June 2020 left at least 20 Indian and four Chinese soldiers dead.

“Seven soldiers killed, 19 injured in the remote Nubra area,” a senior police officer in Ladakh told AFP.

The incident happened early Friday when a vehicle carrying the soldiers for deployment close to the contested frontier skidded off the road and plunged about 15 metres (50 feet) into the Shyok River, according to the official.

India and China, after fighting a full-scale border war in 1962, have long accused each other of trying to seize territory along their unofficial divide, which is known as the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

Relations have soured dramatically since a June 2020 clash along one section between Ladakh and Tibet.

Both sides have since reinforced the region with extra soldiers, military hardware and new infrastructure as multiple rounds of military and diplomatic talks have failed to de-escalate tensions.

So how are Indian troops planning on beating the Chinese when the terrain itself is kicking their behinds?

This is how Chinese troops get to the China-Indian border

  • For the first time, China has demonstrated its strength by sending soldiers by bullet train to the border of India.
  • This bullet train took soldiers from Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, to the city of Ningchi, which is near Arunachal.
  • According to the Global Times, the newly recruited soldiers in the PLA were taken to the practice area at 4,500 meters.

This bullet train line is also a strategic one, it is only 15 kilometers from LAC with India, can greatly help with PLA fast deployment and supplies.
