Explosive video evidence by India today shows that the Chinese incursion in Tuting sector in Arunachal Pradesh’s Upper Siang district not only involved civilians of a road building team, but happened with the full knowledge of the Chinese authorities and Army.
In the exclusive video (from December 2017) accessed by the India Today Group, it can be clearly seen that a boulder barricade was erected at a point inside Indian territory, and that a standoff took place between the Indian and Chinese armies.
The Indian Army team said time and again that they wanted to peacefully resolve the issue.
However, the PLA team said that they couldn’t go back from the said position, unless and until they received orders from higher authorities.
This, perhaps, clearly proves that the Chinese road building team with excavators entered almost a kilometre inside Indian territory, with the full knowledge and permission of the People’s Liberation Army, and Chinese authorities.
However, this isn’t the first time that Chinese authorities have made such an attempt in Arunachal Pradesh.
This has also happened around the McMohan Line in Upper Siang district. But such incidents have been averted due to the alertness of locals, porters and Army personnel.
