It seems that China won’t stop its nefarious activities as it is now on a mission to spy India. After seeing defeat in Dokalam, China is now on its different way to harm the privacy and security of the nation. The neighboring country China is on a mission of spying in the military encampment of Demchok in Leh. Demchok is a village in Leh which has been the site of frequent stand-offs between the Indian Army and the People’s Liberation Army aka PLA.

This week, a talk session between National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and China’s State Councillor Yang Jiechi held in New Delhi and ahead of the session of 20th round of India-China border talk, intelligence reports revealed that Beijing is using three Thuraya satellite phones which are banned in India to collect information about the Indian security equipment in Ladakh.

Reveals the sources, the banned satellites phones have been tracked active around 35-kilometer northwest of Demchok village in Leh. The time of the activeness of satphones was from 3.45pm to 3.41pm on 15 November. In the further investigation, it was found that one of the satphones was connected to three Chinese numbers. While the other one was in contact with 13989****05 which was an active number in China. After this report, all the security agencies are on a high alert.

Reports of the source stated, in 2015, 2016, the three phones were active in Tibet and one time inside Arunachal Pradesh. Also, they were not in operation in Demchok this year. Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir found it uncommon for a neighboring country spying on India. His words were: “Therefore, the Defence Ministry works in tandem with security and intelligence agencies to foil spying attempts. We won’t let such spying mission succeed.”

Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir said, “NSA-level talks are routine to maintain relations with neighboring countries. Such dialogues will continue.”

“Chinese troops are still in Dokalam; India should not be complacent. China may intrude into some other sector and even Dokalam to build pressure in India,” stated by the Security expert and retd. Major General GD Bakshi while speaking to India Today.

General Bakshi suggested that India should strongly raise its concerns at the NSA-level talks without being dominated by the Chinese side. “Otherwise, China will continue with its domineering attitude.”
