New Delhi: More than 100 Chinese troops have reportedly crossed the border into Uttarakhand. According to national media reports, some officials said that the troops who had entered India had returned after damaging a bridge. The Chinese troops reached India through the border at Barahoti in Uttarakhand.
It was a border area with no significant problems for a few years except for minor incursions. China entered the country in 1954 through this region. It spread elsewhere and culminated in the 1962 war. The Chinese troops arrived in India on August 30. But the clash did not take place as the soldiers returned. More than 100 soldiers and 55 horses arrived in India via the Tun Jun La Pass. They traveled more than 5 km across the border.
They continued across the border for about three hours. China’s incursion into the demilitarized zone has raised security concerns. The incident was first confirmed by locals. By the time ITBP officials and Indian troops arrived, the Chinese had returned. Barahoti is located in the northern part of the Nanda Devi National Park. In Uttarakhand, ITBP officials patrol the border, which is about 350 km long.
