Two Chinese helicopters, on September 27, crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC)- the de-facto border between China and India, sources said.
According to a report in ANI, transgression happened near Ladakh trig heights which is also known as Trade junction, which connects Ladakh with Tibet. Sources further suggested that the two choppers remained in the Indian territory for about 10 minutes before heading back.
The two choppers stayed in the Indian territory for 10 minutes before heading back for China. This follows an intelligence report in March that Chinese helicopters violated Indian airspace four times in March.
This development comes weeks after Pakistan violated Indian airspace in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir. Official sources said a white-colour chopper crossed into this side in Gulpur sector and hovered for sometime before turning back.
It was alleged that inside the chopper were PoK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan, Tourism Minister Mushtaq Minhas, and the province’s Education Minister Ifthikar Gilani. These allegations were later rejected by the PoK Prime Minister.
