Chinese troops make fresh bid to violate international border

Close on the heels of over a dozen incursions since the face off in Ladakh in April from across the Line of Actual Control (LAC), Chinese troops made a fresh attempt to violate the international border at Chumar area in northeast of Leh on 20 July but were forced back by Indian troops.

The ‘assertive posturing’ by the Chinese troops, who had climbed a small mountain where they faced Indian troops, has been flashed to all units along the China-India border in the area to keep a strict vigil on their movement, official sources said.

Chinese troops claimed it was their territory and they were headed towards to Tible area, five kilometres deep into the Indian territory.
Chumar, which is located 300 kms from Leh, is the last town after which Himachal Pradesh starts. This area also has the distinction of having a defined International Border with China.
