Where have Indian troops withdrawn to, asks Omar

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Monday expressed concern over media reports that Indian troops had also withdrawn from the site where Chinese troops had ended their incursions after 19 days.

‘While there have been regular incursions on the LAC (Line of Actual Control) it was after a long time that the Chinese came and established tents on our side for 19 days,’ Abdullah said after India and China ended their standoff with sources saying troops of both sides were pulling back to their respective positions prior to 15 April – when Chinese forces had intruded 19 km inside the Indian side of the LAC in Ladakh.

Abdullah, who was talking to reporters here on the opening of the civil secretariat offices here after its six monthly sojourn in winter capital Jammu, said: ‘I am glad that the diplomatic efforts gave us the results and the Chinese forces withdrew yesterday. The visit of our foreign minister to China which had come into question can now go ahead.

‘The only doubt one has in mind is based on the media reports which said it was a withdrawal by both sides. I am wondering where from and where to have the Indian troops withdrawn?’
