Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said incursions along India-China border occur due to problem of perception about boundary.
The leaders of India and China are talking to resolve the issue, the Home Minister assured; a day after a report on Wednesday said two incursions by the Chinese troops have been recorded in the Ladakh sector in the past three days.
The incursion bids by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) were reported in Demchok and Chumar areas of Ladakh sector in Jammu and Kashmir but were pushed back into their territory by Indian security personnel.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping met in Fortaleza, Brazil, Monday night on the sidelines of the BRICS summit and emphasised on the need to find a solution to the Boundary Question.
The latest incident occurred in Charding Nilu Nullah Junction (CNNJ) in Demchok sector on Tuesday when PLA personnel entered the area on their vehicles in the wee hours claiming it was Chinese territory, official sources said on Wednesday.
The PLA soldiers, who wanted to have a round of the area, were stopped by the Indian Army and personnel of Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), a force which guards the India-China border.
After a 30-minute long stand-off followed by a banner drill where armies of both the countries warned each other against moving a step forward, the Chinese PLA returned to their side, the sources said.
The incident took place at Patrol Point number 62, the sources said.
