    Itanagar: In yet another incident of Chinese incursion, about 250 soldiers of China's Peoples Liberation Army entered Arunachal Pradesh's east district of Kameng four days ago, defence sources said on Tuesday.

    The "temporary transgression" by the Chinese patrolling party happened in Yangste, East kameng district on June 9, they said.

    However, the soldiers went back within hours, they added.

    Significantly, the Chinese crossing-over happened at a time when Beijing had hardened its opposition against India's bid for membership of the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

    This is the second known transgression by the Chinese army this year in the region, which China claims is part of its territory.

    Chinese troops again entered almost six km deep inside Indian territory near the Pangong lake area of Ladakh region on March 8 but a patrol of Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) sent them back in two hours, reported Hindustan Times earlier this year.

    Chinese, however, denied any incident of incursion with its Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kongsaying, "There is no such thing as going beyond the border"

    The Chinese troops spent about three hours on this side of the border before going back to their territory, the sources said. China claims approximately 90,000 sq km of territory in Arunachal Pradesh besides 38,000 sq km in Jammu and Kashmir sector.

    The area where the Chinese troops came had seen 21 days standoff between PLA and Indian Army in April 2013 which took place ahead of the then Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's visit to India.

    It was sorted out after hectic round of negotiations following which the Chinese troops withdrew. China has been in denial mode over repeated incursions by the PLA.

    Both the sides have established Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) to discuss the issue of incursions and aggressive border patrols by their troops along the 3,488-km long disputed border.

    Scuffle at border as Indian troops counter aggressive Chinese incursions in Arunachal Pradesh

    NEW DELHI: A scuffle had broken out between troops of Indian Army and Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) when Chinese personnel entered the Indian side from four different border points in Arunachal Pradesh last Thursday, according to an official account of the incident on Wednesday.

    The incident occurred at 'Shankar Tikri' on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) of Yangtse area in Arunachal Pradesh with the PLA claiming the area belonged to China .

    The area, which is being guarded by the Indian Army, was immediately covered and Army moved in its men to prevent the aggressive PLA troops from crossing the perceived LAC in the region.

    An estimated 215 PLA troops reportedly tried to push their way at 'Shakar Tikri' and simultaneously 20 each from 'Thang La' and 'Mera Gap' and another 21 from 'Yanki-I' of Arunachal Pradesh made similar attempts.

    During the normal banner drill, the PLA troops striking an aggressive posture tried to attack the Indian Army personnel physically but were overpowered immediately, official sources said today.

    The sources said the Army has officially reported that there was only a "mild scuffle" between the Army and PLA at east of 'Shankar Tikri'.

    Tensions reportedly eased only after four PLA officers accompanied by an interpreter met Commanding Officer of the Indian Army formation in the area and presented him with two packets of chocolates and one gift packet to the in charge of Yanki-I post.
    Yangtse is one of the identified disputed pockets between the two countries and is an Indian territory. PLA carries out unusually big patrols as compared to other areas along the LAC.

    The area has been reportedly witnessing transgressions by the Chinese side at regular intervals since 2011.

    India has two choices:
    1. 250 pla enter india, 0 return.
    2, 250 pla enter india, 250 IA enter TAR.

    Cosultations and such should come after the above.

    That's what I was thinking. Just officially warn the chinese that any upcoming incursions by anyone will be replied with bullets.

    For the sake of diplomacy, if you don't want to do that then send massive Indian patrols / incursions in chinese territory.

    There was a scuffle and Indian troops overpowered the PLA troops. Next time, it might be necessary to surround them and open fire on them, just like a repeat performance of the Hot Springs incident.

    We need Compulsory Conscription,China has it,every citizen will serve 6 months in Army.They have 1.2 billion Reserves if we take that into account, i also know, reserves don't count, but in a long run "Number is a big factor in Attrition warfare"
    We have our own Dangers with such Conscription, as we are not yet defined as a Country,We are Secular, i don't know what that means in a world full of Christian and Islamic Nations.

    China is just trying to bully India now, to keep it in control! It knows it cannot Control Bharat for long,because the bluff will be called out and Challenged! It is delicately leveraging its options.
    It was a good thing PM Modi nudged closer to USA! That itself is sending a shiver and a pee down their pants.It opens up a whole new possibility of Eastern and Western flank war.Fighting two sides at the same time,The chinese know it., not to mention the Uyghurs,Tibetians and add into the mix some ISIS people.That would make China a potboiler.
