The Special Frontier Force rumoured to be deployed by India to shoo off PLA

The Special Frontier Force is rumoured to have been deployed by India to cast off PLA over the Pangong lake confrontation. Considered as one of the most mysterious forces of India, the Special Frontier Force is termed as an armed unit as it falls under the Cabinet Secretariat reporting to the Prime Minister, and not a part of the Indian Army. Originated during the disaster of the 1962 war with China, the unit has played a role in most major Indian conflicts, including the 1971 Bangladesh liberation war, Operation Blue Star and the capture of Siachen Glacier (both in 1984) and the Kargil War (1999).
