New Delhi: Reports from Leh said a patrol by Indian troops noticed the PLA personnel on Sunday while moving from their base towards a higher post in Burtse area of North Ladakh, at an altitude of 17,000 feet.

The troops spotted the Chinese after walking barely 1.5 km from base. They went back to their base and returned Monday, and saw there was no change, with the Chinese refusing to budge.

 

Army spokesperson Col. S.D. Goswami said “There are areas  where India and China have differing perception of LAC. Due to both sides undertaking patrolling upto their respective perception of the LAC, transgressions do occur. However, no incursion or encroachment of Indian territory by China has taken place.”
