At least 100 Chinese soldiers entered the Indian territory in Uttarakhand and damaged a bridge in Barahoti area before retreating back to China, Economic Times reported.

According to the reports, the troopers of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) transgressed at least 5 kilometres inside the Indian territory through the Tunjun-La pass.

They had come on 55 horses, damaged Indian infrastructure, and left before they could be confronted by the Indian troops.

The ET report, based on sources in the security departments, claimed that the PLA soldiers roamed in Barahoti for around 3 hours.

The transgression by Chinese troops was reported by locals, after which teams from the Indian Army and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police were dispatched to verify the report.

In the Central Sector (a 545-km stretch of border with Tibet in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand), the dispute between India and China is over 2,000 square km of territory, in eight separate areas.

Barahoti lies on the border with China in the Chamoli district of Uttrakhand, north of the Nanda Devi National Park.
