Itanagar: The Indian Army has started to keep strict vigil in the villages along the Indo-Sino border in Arunachal Pradesh, especially in the state’s Anjaw district.
Speaking with EastMojo, a local from Walong, an administrative town in Anjaw district, said the situation along the border is quite tense as of now. There is a considerable increase in the movement of army personnel at present. We haven’t seen such movement for years, he said.
Chinese intrusions were reported the highest in Anjaw and Dibang Valley district in the past few years.
One of EastMojo’s sources from the region informed that the Indian Army is also collecting the names and contact details of all the villagers who live near the Indo-Sino border.
