India Foils Chinese Incursion in Arunachal Pradesh, Briefly Detains PLA Troops

Sources said around 200 Chinese soldiers crossed into the strategic Tawang sector from Tibet and attempted to damage unoccupied bunkers. Officials added that there was no damage to Indian defences.

A few troops from China were temporary detained by Indian soldiers in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang after around 200 of them crossed over into the Indian side from Tibet and attempted to damage unoccupied bunkers, highly placed government sources told News18.com.

The incident took place last week between the border pass of Bum La and Yangtse, close to the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

According to sources, the Chinese patrol party’s transgression into the Indian side of the LAC was strongly contested by Indian troops and a few Chinese soldiers were temporarily detained.

“The matter was subsequently resolved at the local military commanders’ level. The Chinese soldiers were released and situation was defused,” a source in the government told News18.com.

There was no official comment from the Army on the incident. However, defence and security sources told News18.com that there has been no damage to Indian defences.

“The India-China border has not been formally demarcated. Hence, there is a difference in perception of LAC between the countries. Peace and tranquility in these areas of differing perceptions has been possible by adhering to existing agreements and protocols between the two countries,” the source said, adding that both sides undertake patrolling activities up to their line of perception.

“Whenever patrols of both sides physically meet, the situation is managed according to established protocols and mechanisms agreed by both sides. Physical engagement can last for a few hours prior to disengaging as per mutual understanding,” the source said.

A show of Chinese aggression in the region is not new. In 2016, more than 200 Chinese troops had reportedly transgressed into the Indian side of the LAC at Yangtse, but had gone back in a few hours.

In 2011, Chinese troops had tried to scale a 250-metre-long wall on the Indian side of the LAC and damaged it, leading to New Delhi lodging a protest with Beijing.

The latest transgression comes just over a month after a similar intrusion wherein Chinese troops had reportedly carried out aggressive patrolling in Uttarakhand’s Barahoti sector near the LAC. As per a report in the Economic Times, the Chinese had spent a few hours in the sector before turning back.

India and China continue to be engaged in a standoff at the LAC in eastern Ladakh since May last year, even though a disengagement of troops from both sides has taken place in the sensitive Pangong Tso area and the Gogra area after a series of military and diplomatic talks. However, there has been no de-escalation by either side, as both continue to maintain thousands of additional troops along the LAC.

India and China will soon be holding the 13th round of Corps Commander-level talks in eastern Ladakh, in which focus will likely be on further disengagement of troops at the Hot Springs area.

But, while a disengagement process is underway in eastern Ladakh, the latest intrusions indicate that the Chinese are attempting to expand their scope of transgressions to the eastern and the central sectors too.

Why is Tawang Important?

Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh has traditionally remained a friction point between India and China. In the 1962 war, China had captured Tawang within the first few days. It had laid claim on Tawang as part of a larger Tibet, while claiming Arunachal Pradesh as southern Tibet.

The historical significance of Tawang stems from the fact that it is the birthplace of the sixth Dalai Lama and is an important seat in Tibetan Buddhism after Lhasa. Strategically, Tawang provides geographical access up to the Brahmaputra plains and provides the shortest axis to Tezpur in Assam.

A senior defence official told News18.com that the lines of communication from Tawang stretched to Guwahati and the extended Siliguri corridor, which makes Tawang important from the military point of view.

“The three major passes there — Bomdilla, Nechiphu and Se La (connecting Tawang to the rest of Arunachal Pradesh) — aid in deployment of defences by India,” the official said.

At present, Indian troops are preparing to brace yet another harsh winter across the LAC. While China has been carrying out major infrastructure upgradation on its side of the LAC, India too has developed rapid and mass-scale infrastructure in the region for thousands of the additional 50,000-60,000 troops inducted at the LAC — mostly in eastern Ladakh — since last year.

Because of this, living conditions of soldiers would be comparatively better than last year, defence sources said.

Because Indians really were captured and detained in such large numbers they simply feel they must say the same to look like big powerful country.

Even if they see some PLA soldiers they will make up stories about detaining them. The only time so far since last few years where detainment really happened was when PLA captured many Indians in March 2020 and June 2020 and Indian captured a few "lost" PLA soldiers who were scouting alone at night. No other time since then has either side detained the other.




These sissies can't fight.
No we could fight and only time we fought indian pussies this happened.

And we captured dozens of indian sissies in march and dozens in June. Indians only ever caught some scouting PLA on their own. I think we win overall. Not only that killed 20 of your men and your commander.

Those PLA recruits are junior groups graduating a type of training camp and emotional about leaving the team and friends. It is from a documentary.

Of course indians do fake news. India can't do anything except fake news and trolling.

This patrolling in Tawang? No. It happens between India and China where patrols happen. What incident happened that is not typical? Unlike that OP source claiming detained for hours, there was just patrols and meeting of soldiers like other Indian media pieces are talking about since October. The OP source was just embellishing things to make it seem like China is going in with intention to destroy some Indian camps and always talking about "thwarting" things to make India look strong. All that happened is patrols and then Indian side come to meet Chinese side and ask them to go back. Same thing always happened in Ladakh before crisis. Indian troops keep patrolling at least up to Aksai Chin borders and Chinese side come up and ask them to go back. Does PLA say they detained and thwarted Indian attacks every week for 10 years?

Tawang is an Indian town but China's claims in Arunachal Pradesh go up to Tawang. PLA conducted patrols as usual just like India conducts patrols of Chinese land in Ladakh side. This is not news. It happens more since the Ladakh crisis.

China is putting pressure on India here in Tawang because India vacated Pangong and Galwan but have not completely left Ladakh and before China's able to force buffer on Pangong and Galwan due to having PLA inside those areas captured. But since India agreed to buffer of those parts, China has no more bargaining power to kick India off the rest so now the remaining tool is to put pressure on Tawang. Tawang represents Chicken Neck's first stop and cuts off Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Putting more pressure here allows China to negotiate for Indian agreement to total Ladakh buffer status which is not completed yet in full.
