The operations to occupy the heights were carried out along with the pre-emptive actions to occupy heights near the Southern bank of Pangong Tso around August-end, sources said on Thursday.

"has occupied heights overlooking the Chinese Army positions at Finger 4 along the Pangong Tso. These operations were carried out along with the pre-emptive actions to occupy heights near the Southern bank of Pangong Tso around August-end," a source told ANI.

Sources said the Chinese Army had occupied the heights near the Finger 4 but the has now occupied the heights which overlook the Chinese positions at heights including the Green top.

The Chinese have been sitting at Finger 4 from around April-May timeframe but have refused to disengage from there and other friction points in eastern sector.

In another development, armies of India and China held interactions at Brigade Commander-level and Commanding Officer-level in eastern on Thursday which are aimed at keeping the communication lines open between the two sides.

"Armies of India and China today held interactions at Brigade Commander-level and Commanding Officer-level in Eastern Interactions are aimed at keeping the communication lines open between the two sides," Indian Army sources said.

India recently outflanked China by taking control of strategic height near Pangong lake's southern bank. It thwarted an attempt by the Chinese army to transgress into Indian areas near the southern bank of Pangong Tso near Chushul in Ladakh.

India and China have been engaged in a standoff since April-May over the transgressions by the Chinese Army in multiple areas including the Finger area, Galwan Valley, Hot springs, and Kongrung Nala. The situation worsened after 20 Indian soldiers were killed in violent clashes with Chinese troops in Galwan valley in June.
