Description

It is now learnt that even when Prime Minister Vajpayee was in the midst of his visit to China last month a Chinese military patrol had intruded into Arunachal Pradesh in the Eastern Sector. It confronted an Indian intelligence and security team in Arunachal’s Pradesh Subansari district telling it to leave as it was Chinese territory. The Indian Government was silent on the incident. But, when the news appeared on the front page of the Hindustan Times on July 23, it admitted that the Chinese intruded into Indian territory and thus violated the 1996 agreement between the two countries. China, however, retorted denying the intrusion and saying that Arunachal was not part of India and in fact, it alleged, the Indian troops had crossed into their side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC). According to the Hindustan Times report on June 26 a 10-man Indian team comprising four intelligence Bureau (IB) and six Special Service Bureau (SSB) personnel were on a routine mission 14 kilometres inside the LAC in Arunachal Pradesh’s Subansari district when a 21-strong Chinese Army patrol stopped them. The Chinese officer told the team that this is Chinese territory and they should never come here. The members of the Indian team were detained, disarmed and interrogated before they were finally released near the Yume bridge across the Yume Chu river, three kilometres inside the LAC. According to the English daily, the matter was reported to the External Affairs Ministry where a meeting comprising senior officials from the Foreign and Home Ministries and defence officers was held by Ashok Kant, Joint Secretary, (East Asia).
