Satellite images reveal Chinese road built 9 km inside Bhutan: report

Nov 22, 2020 21:36 IST

Apart from setting up the 'Pangda' village more than 2 km within Bhutanese territory, China has also built a 9 km long road in the area, NDTV reported on Sunday while showing exclusive high-resolution satellite images. The area is on the eastern periphery of the Doklam Plateau, where India and Chinese army had a face-off in 2017. The report said the newly constructed road could serve as an alternate route to the Zompelri ridge, from where the Chinese forces can have a clear sight of the 'Chicken's Neck', the piece of land that connects northeast India with the rest of the country. Earlier this week, a journalist working with China's state-media shared images of a village established on the eastern periphery of the Doklam Plateau. However, Bhutan refuted the claims and said that there was no Chinese village inside the landlocked country.
