Chinese Army is carrying out a survey of the villages and border posts in Pakistan-administered-Kashmir, reports said on Wednesday quoting security sources. They said Indian forces are keeping a close watch on the situation.
According to an IANS report, around four dozen PLA soldiers arrived in Kel, Jura and Leepa sectors of PaK a month ago. They divided themselves into groups of five or six each, and visited a number of villages in the area.
The report further claimed that Pakistan Army personnel and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officers were accompanying the PLA soldiers.
A senior government officer told the news agency that the activities of Chinese troops in PaK indicate their intention to build model villages in the region, which can be used both by civilians and military.
The US Department of Defence in its recent report had said China built a large 100-home civilian village inside disputed territory between its Tibet Autonomous Region and India’s Arunachal Pradesh in the eastern sector of the LAC.
