The tanks pulling back to Finger 3 (Source:-https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/ )
After the mutual agreement inked by the two counties regarding the pullback, last week, India still is scrutinizing every single mutual disengagement that is taking place in Pangong Tso, the country has also urged for a written pact approved by China's high powered Study Group before the pullback as the country faces major trust deficit with China as a whole.
The formal agreement consists of a detailed structure of the entire Phase 1 disengagement. Each step has been approved verifying both physically on the ground level as well as through electronic surveillances including quadcopters and satellites. Thereby, the disengagement is slightly ahead of its scheduled time and is quite evidently progressive with respect to coordination, verification and both the parties are willing to complete this Phase 1 before the 20th of February so that they can move forward with the tenth round.
Therefore both India and China wishes to complete the Pangong Tso disengagement within 48 hours and will hold the tenth round of corps commander level talks to focus strategically on the Depsang Plains continuing "friction points" like the Gogra and Hot Springs, the patrolling points 15 and 17 which unlikely causes a slight problem as these two spots barely can spot soldiers on the eye to eye confrontation level but Depsang also have amassed infantry brigades and tank regiments in its two sides, the soldiers exclaimed.
Several questions were also raised countering Depsang which the government quite profoundly answered stating; "Depsang is an old lingering problem that has to be tackled separately".
During the current scenario, both the countries India and China are following cooperative measures and have withdrawn their tanks, heavy weapons, howitzers, etc from the south bank of Pangong Tso Kailash range in the Chushul sector. In fact, the Indian troops had occupied approximately six to seven tactical heights on the ridgeline stretching from Thakung to Gurung Hill, the Magar Hill, the Spanggur Gap, Rezang La, Requin La, etc during the end of August. During this time, the Chinese troops have also acquired a few; the Helmet Top, the Yellow Bump, etc, which were unoccupied due to the mutual understanding between the nations.
Hence, the Indian soldiers are pulling westwards to the Dhan Singh Thapa post between Finger 2 & 3 while the PLA troops setting back to their original position at Sirijap, the Finger 8, the 10km stretch has been taken place until the two parties adequately reach to an agreement during the military and diplomatic talk that will be taking place and according to the pact, PLA has also been asked to flatten the bunkers, etc that was built between Finger 4 and 8 for which they've urged for a little more time.
