Indian media has reported that Chinese troops on Wednesday put up loudspeakers on the Ladakh border and played Punjabi songs to distract Indian troops in the wake of at least three firing incidents between their troops in the last 20 days over a territorial dispute.
According to sources, the post at which the Chinese Army has put up loudspeakers is under constant watch by Indian soldiers. This comes in the wake of Indian troops setting up an around the clock observation near Finger 4, overlooking the positions of the Peoples Liberation Army.
The reports claim that it is possible that the Chinese are indulging in such tactics to distract Indian troops who are feeling the pressure after the Chinese advanced into territory claimed by India without any resistance. India and China had a recent incident near Finger 4 where more than 100 rounds were fired between the troops of the two sides on September 8.
“The first incident happened when the Indian Army preempted the Chinese attempt to occupy heights near Southern Bank of Pangong lake between August 29-31 while the second incident occurred near Mukhpari height on September 7,” army sources told reporters in India.
In the third incident, which occurred on September 8 near the northern bank of Pangong lake, troops of both sides fired more than 100 rounds as the Chinese side was behaving in a very aggressive manner, the sources added.

The incident took place when the Indian foreign minister had gone to Moscow for the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation meeting and met his Chinese counterpart to address the border issues. India and China have held multiple rounds of talks since April-May at both military and diplomatic levels but it has not yielded any significant results till now, according to reports.
