Chinese troops transgress into Uttarakhand

Chinese troops transgress into Uttarakhand

Chinese state media has again urged and warned India to end the almost two-month long stand-off with Beijing in the Doklam region unconditionally to avoid being placed in a position of disadvantage. The Chinese troopers had crossed over into Barahoti on July 25 and went back after they were halted by the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP).

Even as the Doklam standoff on the Sikkim border continues, Chinese troops are reported to have transgressed up to one kilometre into Indian territory in the Barahoti area of Uttarakhand's Chamoli district, threatening threatened shepherds grazing cattle.

According to ANI, the Chinese soldiers entered 800 meters into the Indian territory in Barahoti of Uttarakhand's Chamoli district around 9 am.

Confirming the intrusion by Chinese troops, Uttarakhand chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat dubbed it as a sensitive and a worrisome development. In July 2016 a similar incursion was reported when some civil administration officials visited the Barahoti area and found four or five armed PLA soldiers there with a vehicle.

In a conversation with The Hindu, Long Xingchun, Director of Centre of India Studies, China West Normal University, advocated that Bhutan could become a key player in ending the face-off in Doklam, as part of a two-step formula of finding a solution.

Transgressions occur due to differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) by the two sides. The ITBP jawans would guard the area with weapons in a non-militant manner, that is, with the barrel of the gun facing down.

China has said Indian troops should "unconditionally" withdraw to the Indian side before talks can start on the dispute. In the 1962 war, the PLA did not enter the middle sector. Chinese troops left Barahoti soon after the Indian side protested, sources said. "There was no confrontation between the Chinese soldiers and ITBP", said a source. Indian officials have pointed out that the Doklam issue was staged by China at the behest of Pakistan, China tends to cause a distraction by forcing incursions into Indian soil. India and Bhutan, on the other hand, say that the road lies in the latter's territory.
