Chinese `transgressions` into India on: Army
Jammu: Chinese troops are continuing their "transgressions" along the 646-km-long Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Ladakh sector of Jammu and Kashmir, an Indian Army commander said on Tuesday.
Lt. Gen. B.S. Jaswal, the General Officer Commanding in chief of Northern Command, told reporters: "But these are not intrusions or incursions as the media projects it."
The commander spoke in the town of Nagrota, 13 km from Jammu, the winter capital of the state, after a rally of ex-servicemen at the Sainik School at Nagrota.
Nagrota is the headquarters of the army`s 16 Corps.
"The Chinese transgress according to their perception of the LAC as the border is yet to be finally settled," he said, in reply to a question by a newsperson. "There are varying perceptions of the LAC."
"These transgressions are being taken up by the ministry of external affairs," he said.
Military experts say that the intrusions, which the army calls transgressions, have been going on along the LAC in Ladakh sector since 2008.
Chinese troops have intruded into Indian territory in recent years. They told a group of Indian shepherds in December 2008 not to be near the LAC and in October 2009 got work on a road halted at Demchok, 250 km east of Leh.
