35-40 Chinese troops spotted along LAC in U’khand dist | India News

DEHRADUN: Approximately 35-40 personnel of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China recently visited the LAC opposite Barahoti area in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli district, sources said.
However, they couldn’t confirm if they intruded on the Indian side. “This is the latest case of Chinese activity near Barahoti. They came in horses four to five days ago and left some belongings as evidence of their visit,” a senior government official told TOI on Wednesday.
“They usually visit after the monsoon. They came early this time,” he said. Another government official, who also did not wish to be named, said that the activity of the Chinese army had increased along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) near Barahoti. In 2018, the Indian Army and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) reported to the Centre multiple aerial intrusions in the Barahoti plains by the PLA. On the Indian side, a multidepartmental team also goes on routine recces near the area (usually three times a year) to keep an eye on it. “A team from the district administration visited Barahoti a fortnight ago,” said a senior district police official. Barahoti, which is located along Uttarakhand’s border with China, is merely 397km from the state’s capital, Dehradun. The scenic grassland in Chamoli district is connected by roads to Joshimath. A 3-km steep trek leads to the Barahoti ridge, from where Tibet is visible.
