For over three decades now, an erstwhile royal family from eastern Ladakh’s Chabji-Chumur area has been putting up a solitary fight to retrieve their land from Chinese domination.
They have repeatedly requisitioned power corridors in Srinagar and New Delhi for an intervention. The family’s pleas went unheeded all these years until a fresh wave of border clashes broke out between Indian and Chinese troops in this mountainous cold desert.
The two-acre piece of land (16 kanals and 5 marlas), located near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Chabji-Chumur area of Ladakh, has been occupied by the Chinese since 1984.
The land that once housed a heritage castle was the ancestral property of Rongdol Dorje and his brother Tsering Dorje.
