Incidents of transgressions along the Sino-Indian border in Jammu and Kashmir's Ladakh region have come down this year and an "effective mechanism" has been put in place to tackle any situation, a top Army commander has said.
The officer however said the security situation along the LoC and in hinterlands in Jammu and Kashmir is "fragile but under control".
"There has been a relative decline in the number of transgressions (along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh) during the current year," Army's Northern Commander Lt Gen Ranbir Singh told PTI on Wednesday.
Singh, who was in this famous Himachal Pradesh adventure sport destination for the first inter-services paragliding competition, was replying to a question on ground situation along the LAC in Ladakh in wake of incursions and transgressions in the region.
As per official figures, incidents of transgressions had risen to 426 in 2017, from 273 in 2016. Singh did not give exact number of such incidents in 2018 so far.
