Chinese army entered India



Last year, when Mr. Xi was on an official visit here, Indian security personnel and the Chinese PLA were engaged in a face-off in Chumar sector of Leh district.

The stand-off continued for three days with India sending extra personnel to push back the Chinese.

As for the November 14 incident, a senior official said a Chinese PLA team in a light armoured vehicle was seen patrolling on the Indian side of the LAC in Chushul and it was immediately asked to go back.

As soon as the team came to the Indian side, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) force, which is the first line of defence and the Army personnel asked it to return.

Mr. Modi met Mr. Jinping along with three other BRICS leaders before the G20 summit began on November 16.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, before leaving on his visit to China, said, “I’m looking forward to my visit. Hope it would help in deepening of mutual understanding and trust.”
