Chinese transgression in U'khand

A fresh incident of transgression by the Chinese troops was reported last week in Uttarakhand, said to be the least contentious portion along the disputed Sino-Indian boundary.

The area where the transgression took place on July 22 is a grazing field about 80 sq km at Barahoti in Chamoli district, claimed by both India and China. The area belongs to the 'middle sector' of the disputed border on which maps were exchanged between the two nations.

When Uttarakhand revenue officials went to measure the 'revenue line', they noticed Chinese activity. A small detachment of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troop comprising four to five soldiers had a face-off with Indian officials and border-guarding personnel.
“The incident was handled as per mutually agreed drills. The incident did not last for more than a few minutes,” an official said.
