The present standoff between India and China emerged after New Delhi expressed its apprehension over Beijing's road construction in the Sikkim sector of the border.
The crisis erupted after Indian and Bhutanese troops foiled an attempt by the Chinese Army to encroach on a disputed enclave. These transgressions occur due to differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
The purported movement of the Chinese troops took place even as India's National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval visited Beijing in an attempt to ease tensions in the border regions. In both instances Chinese soldiers numbering about 15-20 came into Indian territory, stayed there for a while and left, Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) sources told PTI in Dehradun.

In an ominous move amid the Sino-Indian military stand-off in Doklam, Chinese troops reportedly transgressed one kilometre into Indian territory in the Barahoti area of Uttarakhand's Chamoli district on July 25 and threatened Indian shepherds grazing cattle. It is also one of three border posts in what is known the "middle sector", comprising Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
China has said Indian troops should "unconditionally" withdraw to the Indian side before talks can start on the dispute. In the 1962 war, PLA did not enter the "middle sector" including parts of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh and were actively focused in the western (Ladakh) and eastern (Arunachal Pradesh) sectors. India also patrols this area but without uniform or weapons, says a report.
After reports emerged that the Chinese troops had entered Uttarakhand on July 25th, the Uttarakhand government has said that it has not received any official information as yet. The ridge is connected to Joshimath, which houses major Indian Army formations meant to counter any major operations by China's People's Liberation Army. India claims some of the areas are part of Ladakh, while China maintains they are part of its Xinjiang region. "It would be wise for India to pull back its troops as soon as possible, instead of just beating around the bush or bargaining with China in the name of Bhutan".
