Chinese PLA troops intrude 3.5 km into Indian territory in Uttarakhand

Chinese People’s Liberation Army troops transgressed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) three times in August and intruded four kilometres into the Indian territory in Uttarakhand’s Barahoti, according to news agency ANI.

As per ITBP sources, the incidents of incursion into the Indian borders by Chinese Army troops occurred on August 6, August 14 and August 15, respectively. The transgressions were as deep as nearly 4 km.

This was not the first time the Chinese Army intruded into the Indian borders. Earlier on August 14, the PLA troops had entered 400 meters deep inside the Demchok sector of eastern Ladakh and set up five tents there.

This came amid the reports of Chinese troops quietly resuming their construction activities in Doklam plateau – a triangular territory in Sikkim sector – that had become the unlikely scene of the India-China imbroglio last year.

Although the Indian government had claimed to have resolved the Doklam issue with diplomatic maturity without losing any ground, a top US official had claimed that China had quietly resumed its activities in the region and neither Bhutan no India sought to dissuade it.
