Military might on show as the Indian Army deploys about 8,000 troops in eastern Ladakh to counter the rising Chinese military presence

The Indian Army is flexing its military muscles in areas previously regarded as peaceful, to counter the rising threat of Chinese troops advancing over the border.

In a bid to strengthen its position against the threat of Chinese troops carrying out incursions along the Line of Actual Control, the Indian Army has enhanced its presence in areas such as Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, where new formations have been deployed.

Along with raising the Mountain Strike Corps in response to the increasing Chinese military presence along the borders, the Army has also deployed an additional two brigades (approximately 8,000 troops) in eastern Ladakh for better security.
