It was responding to a report in The HinduUneasy frontier robs Ladakh’s herders of pastures” published on June 3, the Army said on Thursday that the grazing ground in the area of Chabiji is "beyond the Indian borders."

“There has been no aggression or incursion by the Chinese side in the area. The Indian grazers have traditionally carried out their activity in the Pare Chu valley area and it continues unhindered,” the Army said.
