According to reports they almost reached a border village in the Upper Siang district before Indian troops stopped them from entering the border state.
China’s latest incursion, which comes four months after the two nuclear-armed neighbours ended a tense border standoff at Doklam, a largely uninhabited plateau near the strategic India-Bhutan-China tri-junction, is a rare one during this time of the year. The Chinese rarely launch incursions in winter season ,sources said .
