    New Delhi/Srinagar: Just a day after reports emerged that Chinese troops had intruded 500 metres into the Indian territory in Demchok area of Ladakh and put up tents there, another face-off has been reported between the soldiers of the two countries.

    As per inputs available with Zee Media, the latest incident has been reported from Chumur area in Ladakh.

    Reports said around 300 Chinese troops have surrounded some 100 Indian soldiers and are not letting them move.

    What makes the matter more serious is the fact that the face-off is happening well inside the Indian territory.

    As regards the Demchok incident, reports said some 30 Chinese soldiers have intruded 500 metres into Demchok area and put up tents there since September 11.


    To confront the Chinese troops, around 70 Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel have been were deployed in the area.

    As per sources, both the countries have sent more soldiers to the face-off site at Demchok.

    Last month, Chinese troops had reportedly entered almost 25 kilometres into India at Burtse area in Ladakh.

    In 2014 alone, 334 incidents of Chinese troops' intrusion into Indian border have been reported.

    The incidents come just days ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to India

    No comments yet. This is quite recent news. Only response is that we have mobilised 70 ITBP.

    China ingressed 200 metres in Chumur: Indian Army - IBNLive


    New Delhi: A day after CNN-IBN had reported that Chinese troops had intruded into Indian air space, Army sources on Wednesday also said that Chinese troops had ingressed 200 Metres into Indian territory in Chumar, Ladakh. Army sources said that the incident took place on August 25 but they maintain that no bunkers were destroyed in the incursion.

    There have also been reports of Chinese frontier guards intruding into Chumur over the last five years.

    Chumur forms part of China's extended claim in Ladakh. Although the Indo Tibetan Border Police is stationed there, distance between posts could be more than 20 km.

    Since the air defence radar coverage is not 24x7 it makes an intrusion easier.

    A Chinese helicopter on tuesday had landed in Chumur in Ladakh, sources said, adding that Chinese Frontier Guards who are known to have helicopters have also been seen in the area earlier.

    Re: Another face-off as 300 Chinese soldiers surround 100 Indian troop

    But why? Does this mean they want to take over that territory now? Or is there any other intention? And why are Indian authorities keeping silent about this? No action being taken?

    I know that China's map shows arunachal Pradesh and parts of Kashmir as their own. But the aggression is clearly increasing and we need to respond. This is pure bullying.

    They have learnt it from their "All Weather Friend..
    With the announcement of Investment projects, they thought India belongs to them.

    1:3 is a good ratio. But In hand to hand combat Indian soldiers can defeat them. Our training is better than the chinese.

    The so called and the famous shaolin kung fu is not much of a force to be scared of.

    Lets wait for official confirmation from the GOI.

    Indian soldiers frequently patrol this area, seems Chinese are not letting Indian troops to patrol/build bunkers well inside the Indian territory.

    Regarding the timing of the incident, it is foolish action from Chinese, whose nervous CCP is hugging India.

    Sticks and carrots diplomacy do not work at this moment, since Chinese are saturated and are heading for housing crisis, economic stagnation for long term.

    The only way they can maintain the growth is to invest in emerging economies which can give them good returns, India is the prime candidate and Africa is yet to emerge.

    Ball is in the chinese court to decide what kind of relation they want with India.

    As Narendra Modi said India will make sure its enemies will fear to even look at its borders in the years to come.

    Teaching a lesson is not a problem.

    Just round the chinese soldiers at some other place and make sure those chinese let the Indian soldiers patrol our borders.

    It depends on the strategic response India wants to give to the Chinese bullying.

    India has no answer for this ,in all aspects China has an upper hand ,they know it very well that India cant take risk of a fight when they have pakistan at western border, to make things worse china can deploy there solders very easily as they have all the infrastructure to do so unlike India which is again at self induced coma waiting for another 1962 to wake them up.
    That's the reason the Chinese solders acts like brat kids on the border as they know india still have not grown balls to respond

    The Chinese are probably trying to get us stressed right before Xi visits India, what we need to do in the short run is surround those 300 Chinese with a thousand khukhri waving gurkhas. In the long run we need to seriously build heavy infrastructure and beef up our radar coverage over the entire LAC.

    1) A valid point, But war with India will also weaken China which has more number of enemies like Japan.

    2) Pakistan is a different case, there is a nuclear umberella which India can use if things get out of control, India also have tactical nukes.

    3) In Hilly terrain the ratio should be 5:1 even then victory is not guaranteed.

    4) They have infrastructure in their side, once they cross the border and face the guerilla warfare, story will become different.

    5) It is China that is in self induced coma provoking every neighbor.
