Chinese soldiers entered Uttarakhand's Barahoti a week ago, reports claim

The transgression took place at Barahoti in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand. "Transgressions do occur due to differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control (LAC)", a source said.

According to reports, the Chinese troops entered 800 metres inside the Indian territory and retreated after almost two hours.

China says Indian troops crossed the border at Sikkim in June to stop the Chinese army from constructing a road on a remote Himalayan plateau it calls Donglang.

The Chinese foreign ministry, in a brief readout on Doval-Yang meeting, said Yang "elaborated China's position on bilateral issues and major problems", which is being seen as an apparent reference to the standoff in the Doklam area.

"It has been happening for decades". The Chinese troops, too, withdrew the same day. Barahoti is an 80 sq km sloping pasture about 140 km from the Uttarakhand capital Dehradun.

Even though transgressions were common in the Ladakh and North East, such incidents were rarely reported from the middle sector in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh in the past. They had a heated exchange of words with Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) before they left after two hours.

Chinese troops on July 26 entered a disputed stretch along with the International Border with India. In the 1962 war, the PLA did not enter the middle sector and focused on western and eastern ones.

The ITBP jawans would guard the area with weapons in a non-militant manner, that is, with the barrel of the gun facing down. It was agreed that troops would not carry arms in three posts, Barahoti, Kauril and Shipki in Himachal Pradesh.

ITBP men patrol these areas in civil dress. The Chinese troops had claimed that it was their land. These are not uncommon to the people of Barahoti. Three days later, an air transgression by a Chinese helicopter was reported in the same area. Chinese troops often demolish such local shrines and Indians rebuild them.
