The Army shared pictures of tanks and convoys of light armored vehicles moving with soldiers and equipment towards the rear areas as part of the disengagement process. Large number of Chinese tanks can be seen moving away from the south bank of the Pangong Tso lake.
These tanks were deployed at the banks of the lake ten months ago as tensions erupted between both nations after Chinese forces built structures in the area triggering a strong reaction from the India.
The Indian Army also shared videos where the PLA can be seen razing structures built along the banks of the Pangong Tso lake. PLA cranes can be seen razing structures and restoring the south bank of the Pangong Tso lake as PLA soldiers oversee the disengagement process.
A picture shared by the Indian Army also showed Chinese soldiers removing a generator or a motor after dismantling a camp and dish antenna can also be seen lying in the ground beside the camp.
Pictures also show PLA soldiers dismantling their bunkers which were built along the South Bank of the Pangong Tso lake. Chinese PLA soldiers can be seen folding corrugated sheets meant to cover the bunkers and protect the soldiers from the extreme cold.
PLA soldiers were also seen moving with their heavy loads towards light armored vehicles in pictures shared by the Northern Command of the Indian Army.
People familiar with the developments told Hindustan Times on Monday that the disengagement process in eastern Ladakh’s Pangong Tso area is scheduled to end at the end of this week. The disengagement process began on December 10.
