New Delhi, Sep 05: The Indian Army has rescued Chinese citizens in North Sikkim. The Indian Army has extended a helping hand to three Chinese citizens who lost their way in the plateau are of North Sikkim.
Realising the danger to the lives of the Chinese citizens, which included two men and one woman in sub zero temperatures, the soldiers of the Indian Army immediately reached out and provided medical assistance including oxygen, food and warm clothes to protect them from the vagaries of the extreme altitude and harsh climatic conditions.
New Delhi, Dec 19:The Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) has built 18 new border outposts in Sikkim since the resolution of the Dolkam crisis between India and China. The SSB which guards the India-Nepal and India-Bhutan border put up the new outposts in Sikkim and Arunachal since the Doklam standoff ended.
The Lashkar-e-Tayiba has called for strikes across the state of North East. In a video a Lashkar-e-Tayiba commander Amir Hamza is seen urging his men to wage a war in the north eastern states of Sikkim and Darjeeling.
India has ulterior motives and this prompted the inclusion of the tri-junction with Bhutan in the Sikkim standoff, China has said. New Delhi’s acceptance of the 1890 Sino-British treaty on the boundaries in the area should not change with the passage of time, China further said.
In a bid to strengthen its position in an area near Sikkim, India has pushed in more troops in a ‘non-combative’ mode. India has been locked in a standoff with Chinese troops for almost a month now in what has been the longest such impasse between the two armies since 1962.
