Chinese troops intruded into Indian space on July 26 in Chamoli

India China to build CBM through multilateral fora

AMID THE ongoing standoff between India and China in Doklam, Chinese soldiers made a brief transgression into Indian territory at the Barahoti area in Chamoli district in Uttarakhand on July 25, said security sources.

About 15-20 Chinese troops entered 1 km into Uttarakhand's Barahoti sector this month, officials said on Monday. The Chinese soldiers forced the shepherds to vacate the land even when they were Indians in their own territory, doing their everyday work of grazing their cattle. Barahoti, an open pasture area, is a disputed area on the India-China border, with frequent transgressions by the Chinese being reported.

This year, however, it has taken place at a time India and China are locked in a massive standoff at the border in Sikkim, the longest between the two countries since the 1962 war.

The Barahoti incident comes as troops of both sides are locked in a stand-off in Doklam in the Sikkim sector since mid-June, with no sign of let up.

Officials speaking off the record said such incidents have happened in the past and are best sorted out locally.

Starbucks to close down all Teavana locations, impacting 3300 jobs
The coffee giant said last quarter that many of its Teavana stores were a drag on results. For the quarter, Starbucks reported earnings of $691.6 million, or 47 cents per share.

On July 19, government officials found People's Liberation Army troops on the Barahotio pasture ground and asked them to move back.

One of the purposes of Doval's July 27-28 visit to China was to discuss with his Chinese counterpart a way to identify the step forward to break the logjam on the face-off at the Doka La near India-China-Bhutan tri-junction on the eastern front.

Transgressions occur due to differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) by the two sides. In 1958, India and China listed Barahoti as a disputed area where neither side would send their troops. The troops are believed to have spent a few hours within India's borders before they returned.

The incident took place just a day before National Security Adviser Ajit Doval left for Beijing to attend a meeting of NSAs of BRICS. Officials also said the ITBP patrols the Barahoti region in civil dress where Indian shepherds from border villages and people from Tibet graze their animals.
