U'khand was in the dark about Chinese incursions in Barahoti

India and China have been involved in a military standoff at Sikkim's Doka La sector for over a month now.

The incursion into Uttarakhand occurred on July 25 at about 9 am.

"Since India is Bhutan's protector, India's withdrawal would mean stabbing Bhutan in the back and abandoning its ally", the daily adds. They had a heated exchange of words with Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) before they left after two hours.

Chinese state media has again urged and warned India to end the almost two-month long stand-off with Beijing in the Doklam region unconditionally to avoid being placed in a position of disadvantage. "Partially, it (the news report) is correct", Bhatt told HT.Located 140 km from Dehradun, Barahoti is an 80-km-long pasture where local grazers go with their livestock.In Dehradun, officials admitted that they were surprised to learn about the media reports from Delhi on the Chinese intrusion in Chamoli district.

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval was in Beijing to attend a BRICS security summit last week when the issue is believed to have figured in his talks with Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi.

After the war, ITBP jawans would patrol the area with weapons in a non-combative manner - with the barrel of the gun pointing down.

In 1958, India and China listed Barahoti as a disputed area and agreed that neither side would send their troops there.

"There is a written agreement signed in 2012 which states that the issue of trijunction (the border where the three countries meet) should be decided by India, China and ..."

After reports emerged that the Chinese troops had entered Uttarakhand on July 25th, the Uttarakhand government has said that it has not received any official information as yet. In the 1962 war, the PLA did not enter the middle sector and focused on the western (Ladakh) and eastern (Arunachal Pradesh) sectors. The stand-off ensued after the Indian side objected to China trying to build a road in the region located near Bhutan.

It quoted Macau-based Antony Wong Dong as saying: "India is strategically located at the heart of China's energy lifeline and the Belt and Road Initiative, and offending India will only push it into the rival camp, which [Beijing believes] is scheming to contain China by blocking the Malacca Strait and the Indian Ocean".
