Amid Doklam stand-off, Chinese soldiers transgressed into Barahoti 6 days ago

Amid Dokalam standoff, Chinese incursion in Uttarakhand

After all that embracing, has USA left India out in the cold over standoff with China?

"Soldiers of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) came in about 1 km into Indian territory and asked local shepherds from India who were grazing their cattle there to leave".

"Since India is Bhutan's protector, India's withdrawal would mean stabbing Bhutan in the back and abandoning its ally", the daily adds. It is a demilitarised zone where Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) jawans do not carry their weapons in accordance with a bilateral pact in 2000. "Transgressions do occur due to differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control (LAC)".

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. In fact, agency reports from Delhi on Monday said the Chinese had transgressed into Indian territory twice at Barahoti in July.

Amid reports of Chinese troops transgressing nearly a kilometre into Indian territory in Barahoti of Uttarakhand last week, sources said on Monday that similar incidents have occurred in the past too and have been sorted out locally.

India seizes record heroin haul off merchant ship on Gujarat coast
The ship - MV Hennery - was taken to Porbandar on Sunday for further investigation, the Coast Guard was quoted as saying. The vessel which was heading towards Alang ship breaking yard was suspected of carrying some suspicious material in it.

Barahoti, an 80 sq km sloping pasture about 140 km from the Uttarakhand capital Dehradun, is one of three border posts in what is known the "middle sector", comprising Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. It is part of the 4,056 km long India-China border.

There was hope of a breakthrough in the border row last week ahead of Doval's meeting with Xi on the sidelines of BRICS summit in Beijing.

Reports said that Chinese troops stayed inside the Indian territory for over 2 hours before going back. In the 1962 war, PLA did not enter the "middle sector" including parts of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh and were actively focused in the western (Ladakh) and eastern (Arunachal Pradesh) sectors.

The area where incursions have been reported in the past is close to a revered pond called Parvati Kund, where there is said to be a small Kali and Shiva temple.

India "arouses sympathy" because it is "in a weaker position compared with China", say the Global Times op-ed piece.
