ilitary patrol parties of India and China stood face to face with each other for hours just north-east of Tawang in Arunchal Pradesh last week, Tribune reported.
The patrol parties had come face-to-face and both insisted that the other one retreat.
Tribune quoted sources as saying that no one was detained; it was just that the patrol parties came face to face and stood their ground. To say one patrol party detained the other would be incorrect. The patrol of the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) of China had 200 men.
The incident happened between Bum La – a 15,200-ft high pass – and the Yangtse, an Indian Border outpost that is 25 km east of Bum La.
Things are now back to normal, said sources.
