Chinese troops cross LA, take away surveillance camera

Chinese troops transgressed the LAC in Ladakh region last month, barely two months after their incursion resulted in heightened tensions, and took away a surveillance camera, army sources said Tuesday.

The camera was returned after the Indian Army authorities took up the issue with their Chinese counterparts, the sources said.

"The matter was resolved at the local level," said an army source reiterating the perception of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) was different among India and China in the sector.

According to the sources, the Chinese patrol in Chumar sector in southern Ladakh June 17 took away a camera placed about 6 km ahead of an Indian Army post. It was returned July 3.

The two countries last week agreed to enhance interaction of border troops delegations to promote dialogue and strengthen trust and cooperation during Defence Minister A.K. Antony's visit to China July 4-7.

This is the second incident of border transgression by the Chinese troops since April. The face-off between the two sides in Ladakh's Daulat Beg Oldi sector April 15 was triggered by construction of an Indian army observation tower in Chumar division which had to be subsequently dismantled May 5 before the crisis was defused, said the sources.
