Chinese incursions into India reported

Indian army soldiers march near an army base on India's Tezpur Tawang highway which runs to the Chinese border in the northeastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh

The latest incident of transgression comes at a time when the Sikkim sector of the LAC is witnessing a face-off between troops from India and China.

"Soldiers of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) came in about 1 km into Indian territory and asked local shepherds from India who were grazing their cattle there to leave". The article argued that China must avoid war, but insist on Indian troop withdrawal from Doklam by other means. They had a heated exchange of words with Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) before they left after two hours. "Transgressions do occur due to differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control (LAC)".

India has conveyed to China that the construction of road in the disputed Doklam area near Sikkim would represent a significant change of status quo with serious security implications for New Delhi.

Amid a military standoff in Doklam, fresh tensions erupted in the country's western border where the Chinese troops have been accused of transgressing into the Indian territory, media report said on Monday.

China is insisting that India should pull back its troops before the talks on the issue take place.

Barahoti, an 80 sq km sloping pasture about 140 km from Uttarakhand capital Dehradun, is one of three border posts in what is known as the "middle sector", comprising Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

Barahoti in the Chamoli district reported such instances of Chinese transgression in the past too.

Barahoti was listed as a disputed area by India and China in 1958, and it was agreed that neither side would send troops.

After the war, ITBP jawans would patrol the area with weapons in a non-combative manner - with the barrel of the gun pointing down.

There is no official word either from the Indian government or the Chinese administration on any of these developments. "In the Barahoti area, such transgressions are a regular affair and happen twice or thrice a year in June-July", they added.

Apart from India, China has also always been embroiled in a contest with Japan over East China Sea islands, as well as with five other governments over competing claims to territory in the strategically vital South China Sea.
