Google maps show Arunachal areas in China
Guwahati: In what could cause further unease in the already volatile Indo-China relations, Google satellite maps have shown some areas of Arunachal Pradesh in China.
The changes, noticed (on Thursday, August 06) hours before the Sino-Indian talks on border dispute on Friday, show certain areas of Arunachal – including Itanagar and Tawang – in Mandarin instead of Hindi or English, thus making them appear as Chinese territory.
The map further shows Arunachal’s southern boundary with Assam and northern boundary with China in broken lines, while the state’s eastern and western boundaries with Bhutan and Myanmar are shown in continuous white lines.
It is suspected that Chinese trouble-makers may have hacked into Google and changed the names. The images have ruffled feathers in New Delhi and Arunachal Pradesh.
