Chinese incursion issue along Uttarakhand border raised in Lok Sabha

New Delhi: The opposition Congress, Samajwadi Party and Trinamool Congress on Thursday raised in the Lok Sabha the incursion by Chinese troops along the Uttarakhand border earlier this month. Jyotiraditya Scindia of the Congress and others raised the issue during zero hour. Scindia said the incursion took place near Chamoli and the Chinese troops had come around 200 metres into Indian territory. "There were reports that the Chinese troops had also misbehaved with the local revenue department official in the area," the Congress lawmaker alleged.
