"Lt. Gen. PJS Pannu briefed the governor about the overall situation along the Line of Control (LoC) and the Line of Actual Control, which fall within the area of responsibility of the 14 Corps," a spokesman of the Raj Bhawan said in Srinagar.

Vohra's visit to Leh comes days after Indian border guards thwarted an attempt by Chinese soldiers to enter Indian territory along the banks of famous Pangong lake in Ladakh resulting in stone pelting that caused minor injuries to people on both sides.

Pannu also informed the governor about other important matters relating to the Ladakh region, specifically connectivity issues being faced by shepherds and grazers in the area, the spokesman said.
