SummaryChinese incursions into disputed borederland have fed Indian insecurity in the area.

Against the backdrop of increasing incidents of Chinese incursions, Army Chief General Bikram Singh reached Ladakh on Saturday to review the security situation there.

During the day-long visit, the Army Chief will take stock of the situation in the Ladakh sector, which is the area of responsibility of the Leh-based 14 Corps, Army officials posted there said.

The visit of the Army Chief to Ladakh comes at a time when concerns have been raised over the increasing incidents of intrusions by China's Peoples' Liberation Army (PLA) in Indian areas and face-offs between the troops of the two sides.

The two countries are also discussing mechanisms to avoid flare ups between the two sides at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) while patrolling.

Recently, a Committee headed by National Security Advisory Board Chairman Shyam Saran had also visited Ladakh to review the border infrastructure and also deal with several aspects relating to the region covering a broad spectrum of activities and requirements.

Saran had also filed a report dealing with requirement of air facilities in Ladakh region along with matters relating to land acquisition and environmental and wildlife clearances.
