Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday hit out at separatist groups for maintaining silence over the presence of Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) troops along the Line of Control in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
"How is it that Kashmiri leaders who have so much to say about Indian troops in J&K have nothing to say about Chinese troops across the LoC?" Omar tweeted.
After frequent incursions in Ladakh area, PLA troops have been spotted at forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) on the Pakistani side of Kashmir, ringing alarm bells in the security establishment.
The Army spotted senior PLA officials at the forward posts opposite Nowgam sector in North Kashmir after which some intercepts of Pakistani army officers suggested that the Chinese troops have come to create some infrastructure along the LoC, sources in the know of developments said.
