Kolkata: Amid reports of a Chinese incursion in Arunachal Pradesh, Eastern Army Commander Lt Gen Praveen Bakshi has reviewed security situation in the northeastern border state, officials said on Wednesday.
During his three-day tour of Assam and Arunachal, Bakshi visited different units and formations at Tezpur, where Gajraj Corps is based, and held discussion on a wide range of issues, officials said.
The army commander also undertook forward area visit at Missamari in Assam and Tenga in Arunachal Pradesh where he was briefed on all operational and training exercises undertaken by the units.
He also interacted with a number of commanders and troops deployed in forward areas before returning to Kolkata today.
On June 9, about 250 China's Peoples Liberation Army soldiers had entered East Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh for about three hours.
The "temporary transgression" by the Chinese patrolling party was the first known transgression this year in the region, which China claims is part of its territory.
