China Damaged Indian bridge in Uttarakhand – Report
Sources further said that the Chinese army destroyed the foot bridge, but there was no faceoff with Indian forces. “By the time, the Army and ITBP troops came, the PLA soldiers had left,” sources added.
Amid the reports, chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has said that the government has “no such information.”
Around 100 Chinese soldiers entered the Indian territory in Uttarakhand and damaged a bridge in the Barahoti area before retreating back to China, said a report published in the Economic Times.
According to the reports, the soldiers of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) transgressed at least 5 kilometers inside the Indian territory through the Tunjun-La pass.
They had come on 55 horses, damaged Indian infrastructure, and left before they could be confronted by the Indian troops.

The security departments claimed that the PLA soldiers roamed in Barahoti for around 3 hours.
The transgression by Chinese troops was reported by locals, after which teams from the Indian Army and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police were dispatched to verify the report.
In the Central Sector (a 545-km stretch of border with Tibet in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand), the dispute between India and China is over 2,000 square km of territory, in eight separate areas.
Barahoti lies on the border with China in the Chamoli district of Uttrakhand, north of the Nanda Devi National Park.
