    In another transgression, Chinese troops entered India in the Sikkim sector and jostled with Indian army personnel guarding the Sino-India frontier, besides destroying two bunker.

    The face-off has been going on in Doka La general area in Sikkim for the past ten days and the Chinese troops have also stopped the batch of pilgrims that was proceeding for Kailash Mansovar yatra, official sources said today.

    The Indian troops had to struggle hard to stop the Chinese personnel from advancing further into Indian territory. They formed a human wall along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) to stop the PLA personnel, some of whom also videographed and clicked pictures of the incident.

    The bunkers have been destroyed in Lalten area of the Doka La area. A flag meeting was also held between senior army officers of both the sides on June 20, but the tension still continues.

    It is not the first time that such a transgression has happened at the Doka La, a place at the Sikkim-Bhutan-Tibet tri-junction. The Chinese forces had in November 2008 destroyed some makeshift Indian army bunkers at the same place.

    the talk of "no bullets have been fired on the Indo China border" being put to test by the Chinese. They are certainly a shrewd bunch. we cant open fire without a repercussion, maybe build more "human walls". Both countries can certainly afford that with surging populations.

    Mistake made by Narasimha Rao give in withdrawal of troops from DokaLa in 1995 under mutual CBMs. China quickly occupied eastern ridge

    China is now in a situation where it has to either let go its investment in CPEC or find a backer thru India to ensure that it becomes bigger? India is opposed to it. But If India becomes a part of it, China will reap rewards much bigger than their investment as India is a much bigger market. If Pakistan is Balkanised by India and the renegade states like Baluchistan and Sindh controlled by India, China will gain much more than what they actually negotiated for.

    That calls for the annihilation of Pakistan by India. If Pakistan stays, China won't get the benefits you said they are looking for. Are you suggesting that China is basically hoping that India beat the crap out of Pakistan?? :blink:

    India has more men deployed than the Chinese side on the LAC between India and China

    Our supply lines are also shorter

    There is nothing to worry

    China blames Indian military for Sikkim trouble after stand-off destroys bunkers, says will defend rights
    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.

    • tension along the Line of Actual Control in Sikkim, where the two sides were reportedly involved in a tense confrontation earlier this month.

      Indian and Chinese troops scuffled near the Doka La area in the first week of June, PTI reported earlier in the day quoting unnamed sources, before soldiers from Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) damaged bunkers on the Indian side.









      The stand-off in Sikkim comes at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Washington and is expected to negotiate a deal to buy American surveillance drones and reinvigorate strategic ties, moves that could rile Beijing.

      The confrontation in Sikkim snowballed with the Chinese side deciding to stop last week the Kailash Mansarovar yatra through Sikkim that Indian pilgrims take to travel to Tibet, according to the report.

      The PLA had a different sequence of events, accusing Indian soldiers of interfering in its sovereignty.

      “Recently, the Chinese side in the Donglang area for road construction, was blocked by the Indian Army line,” a late-night statement from the PLA said. “The construction of the above-mentioned roads by the Chinese side is entirely a sovereign act in its own territory, and the Indian side has no right to interfere.”

      For decades, ties between India and China have remained fraught over stretches of their disputed Himalayan border and competing geo-political ambitions. The two sides fought a short but bloody border war in 1962.

      On Monday, the PLA said the problem persisted despite a meeting between the two sides and the Indian military “unilaterally provoked trouble”.


      “China is committed to developing bilateral relations between China and India, but also firmly defend their legitimate rights and interests. It is hoped that the Indian meet China halfway and do not take any complication of the border issue and jointly maintain the good momentum of development of bilateral relations,” the statement said.

      According to the PTI report, the Indian Army twice asked the Chinese to join a flag meeting after the confrontation. Both requests were turned down before the Chinese side agreed to a meeting on June 20. It was then that they conveyed to their Indian counterparts that pilgrims would not be allowed to cross into Tibet.

      The pilgrims were kept waiting till June 23 after which they returned to Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim, which is the only region where the border between India and China is demarcated, according to PTI.

      The Line of Actual Control is the de-facto, 4,000-km long border that India and China share in regions that they both claim as their territory.

      It is not the first time that a transgression has happened at Doka La, on the Sikkim-Bhutan-Tibet tri-junction.

      Chinese forces had in November 2008 destroyed makeshift Indian army bunkers.

      Earlier this year, Chinese helicopters entered Indian airspace in the Barahoti area of Uttarakhand.
