Troops for China border

image Amidst reports of intrusions by Chinese forces into Bhutan, India has made a move that is reflecting its unease on the eastern front border.

Six thousand troops have been stationed near the Nathu La Pass close to the tri junction of India, Bhutan and China.

The army says these troops belonging to the 27 Mountain Division were pulled out from Kashmir in the past three to four months.

The Army chief has played it down the new deployment. General Deepak Kapoor, Chief of Army Staff, says the reports of intrusions near Sikkim are a matter between China and Bhutan.

While the Army chief maybe keen to stay away from what is essentially a diplomatic row, the past few years have seen several violations of the international border with Chinese incursions being reported from Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
