Dehra Dun: The ITBP on Sunday denied media
reports that the Chinese Army has made any incursion into the
Uttarakhand border but said security forces were on high

"We have not sighted any incursion by the Chinese army
on the Indian side in Uttarakhand," Indo-Tibeten Border Police
DIG Sanjay Singhal said here.

However, some civilians mostly shepherds usually come to
Indian side during the monsoon season which is not an
"unusual" thing on the Uttarakhand-Tibet border particularly
in Barahoti area in Chamoli district, Singhal said.

Singhal said ITBP personnel are on high alert and
keeping a close watch on the other side of the border.
