The PLA has only one cavalry company. The last PLA cavalry company was deployed on the border between China and Mongolia. There are no cavalry in the Western military region.
then the indians lied. they claimed it was 100 cavalrymen (but now their CM has denied the reports/rumors) fake new as you previously said

Does it make Indians cowardly or shrewd?
all that and dishonorable, demented, delusional.

you together with China and Pakistan are almost half the world. imagine what you could achieve. but the stockholm syndrome combined with hubris will not allow you to think rationally. it was never the Chinese nor the Pakistanis but Westerns, Afghans and Iranis who shafted you for a thousand years.

and who do you seek to destroy? yup, your own neighbors and kin. who are you enriching? yup, those who oppressed you for a millennium

Chinese PLA in Uttarakhand's Barahoti, returns after damaging bridge


Over 100 PLA soldiers crossed the border at Barahoti in Uttarakhand last month, damaged some infrastructure, including a bridge, before retreating, according to officials aware of the situation.

Over 100 PLA soldiers crossed the border at Barahoti in Uttarakhand last month, damaged some infrastructure, including a bridge, before retreating, according to officials aware of the situation. The transgression, even as disengagement of troops in eastern Ladakh has been progressing well, has sounded the alarm bells in the central sector.

While Barahoti has not been a major border flashpoint in recent years - minor transgressions are often reported - the place was
the first area which saw transborder intrusions by the Chinese, in 1954, which later expanded to other areas and culminated in the 1962 war.

The incident on August 30 did not result in a face-off as PLA soldiers returned before they could be confronted. Over 100 soldiers and 55 horses transgressed over 5 km of Indian territory by crossing the Tun Jun La Pass, security establishment insiders told ET.


While there have been minor PLA transgressions in the sector over the past few years - the last one in July - the scale was much larger, leading to concern in New Delhi given continuing border tensions in eastern Ladakh. Government officials confirmed that Chinese soldiers along with military horses had come to the grazing ground near Barahoti, crossing the Tun Jun La Pass.


It is believed that the group stayed in the vicinity for around three hours. Since the area is a demilitarised zone, the presence of a large number of PLA soldiers led to concern within the security establishment. Sources said the transgression was reported by locals following which teams from ITBP and Army sent across a patrol to verify. However, the Chinese troops vacated before the patrol reached the area, it is learnt.


The Barahoti ridge lies north of the Nanda Devi National Park and troops trek to it from the last motorable point. The ridge is connected to Joshimath, where the Indian Army and ITBP have camps to counter any major PLA operations. The ITBP monitors the nearly 350 km border in Uttarakhand which is part of the Line of Actual Control that divides India and China.


A home ministry official said that Indian and Chinese perceptions about LAC differ, which lead to frequent incursions in the area. An ITBP spokesperson, when contacted, refused to comment. Officials acknowledged that activities of PLA troops have gone up in the region in the past few months. "Earlier also several attempts were made by PLA to infiltrate the Barahoti area. Additional troops have been deployed in the central sector now," said another official. Intelligence agencies have also flagged Chinese activity at the air base near Barahoti. The PLA has also substantially increased its defence across the LAC in the region since the border confrontation in Ladakh last year.


Indians should have thought of the consequences of messing with the Chinese. Now, it's too late for pajeet china Bhai Bhai mantra. Chinese will be fingering you in Ladakh lakes very often, pun intended here, so get used to this new normal.
Going by what the Indian members here are saying, the Chinese did cross & India did nothing. They’re essentially calling themselves cowards 😂😂😂
Chinese were probing indians deeply, but instead of resisting, indians turned the other cheek.

Highlights
  1. Sources say Chinese side has significantly ramped up infrastructure development along the LAC in the sector
  2. India has been maintaining a strict vigil along the nearly 3,500-km LAC following the eastern Ladakh standoff
  3. Each side currently has around 50,000 to 60,000 troops along the LAC in the sensitive sector

By Ram Anuj
New Delhi: While there is no official confirmation, around 100 soldiers of China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) reportedly transgressed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Barahoti sector in Uttarakhand last month, people familiar with the development said on Tuesday (September 28), according to PTI. The transgression took place on August 30, and the Chinese troops returned from the area after spending few hours, they said. The Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel are deployed in the area.


The people cited above said as part of a tit-for-tat strategy, Indian troops carried out patrolling. There was no official comment on the Chinese transgression. The incident comes amid a continuing standoff between Indian and Chinese troops in a number of areas in eastern Ladakh though both sides completed disengagement in two sensitive locations.
The people cited above said minor transgressions have been taking place in Barahoti because of differing perceptions about the LAC by both sides.
However, what surprised the Indian officials was the number of PLA personnel who transgressed on August 30. The Chinese side has also significantly ramped up infrastructure development along the LAC in the sector.


India has been maintaining a strict vigil along the nearly 3,500-km LAC following the eastern Ladakh standoff. The border standoff between the Indian and Chinese militaries erupted on May 5 last year in eastern Ladakh following a violent clash in the Pangong lake area. Both sides gradually enhanced their deployment by rushing in tens of thousands of soldiers as well as heavy weaponry.

As a result of a series of military and diplomatic talks, the two sides completed the disengagement process in the Gogra area last month.
In February, the two sides completed the withdrawal of troops and weapons from the north and south banks of the Pangong lake in line with an agreement on disengagement.
Each side currently has around 50,000 to 60,000 troops along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the sensitive sector.
Meanwhile, when asked about the arrival of Chinese soldiers on the border of Uttarakhand and China, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said that there is no information about such an occurence. "But the central government is always alert about the security of the border, and if any such incident comes to the fore, then it will be shared with the media," the CM said.

Indians just sit and take it at the chin. Every single time.
This incident proved it is the Chinese who take it in the chin as they could not even stay in a remote area with no Indian troops for more than a few hours and had to flee bacl before Indian troops came to throw them out.

Not only this but there is also something here, hiding in plain sight. Earlier from July 2021.
