Chinese troops 'destroy two Indian bunkers after crossing Sino-India frontier'

Chinese troops 'destroy two Indian bunkers after crossing Sino-India frontier'

After the India-China war of 1962, the area has been under the Indian Army and the ITBP, which is the border guarding force and has a camp 15km from the worldwide border.

Meanwhile, a flag meeting was also held between senior army officers of both the sides on June 20, but the tension still continues. The pilgrims were scheduled to cross over to the Chinese side on June 19 but had failed to do so due to inclement weather.

China also stopped Indian pilgrims on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, which is on the Chinese side of Tibet. China last week refused entry to them.

Transgressions and incursions between Indian and Chinese troops are not uncommon along the 4,057-km Line of Actual Control, but are mostly played down by security agencies. Doka La is located at the tri-junction of Sikkim-Bhutan-Tibet.

Ever since newly-appointed Indian Army chief Bipin Rawat took charge, India has expedited work related to building movable modern bunkers along the border shared with China. Sikkim is a part of the sector and experts have been warning the government of increased Chinese activities in this area. "After the independence of India, the Indian government has confirmed in writing several times, acknowledging that there is no objection to the border between the two sides", the statement said.

The road construction was carried out on China's territory and India had no right to interfere, Ren said.

There was no official comment from the Indian Army or Defence Ministry.

There was no official comment from the Indian Army or Defence Ministry on the incident. This year, a total of 350 yatris had registered for the yatra via Nathu La route and they were to travel in seven batches.

There was also a scuffle as Indian troops pushed back their Chinese counterparts who made attempts to enter Indian territory at Doka La general area in Sikkim.

The PLA indicated it was the Indian military which triggered trouble, leading to the altercation between the two militaries in the mountainous region and stopping of the Indian pilgrims on their way to Kailash Mansarovar.
