Chinese army entered Uttarakhand thrice this August, allegedly threatened shepherds

The Hush Post: The Chinese Army entered Indian territory in Uttarakhand thrice this August. They allegedly entered Barahoti area in the month of August.
The Chinese transgressed the Line of Actual Control on August 6, 14 and 15. The Chinese troops came as deep as 4 km into the Indian territory in Barahoti. No official confirmation has been made about it.

On July 25 it was reported that Chinese border guards entered one kilometre into Indian territory. They threatened shepherds grazing cattle in the Barahoti area of Uttarakhand’s Chamoli district.

Troops of India and China were locked in a 73-day stand-off in Doklam from June 16 last year. This, after the Indian side stopped them from building a road in the disputed area. The stalemate ended on August 28. Bhutan and China have a dispute over Doklam. The conflict ended on August 28, 2017.

Doklam has been a sour point between India and China for past about one year or so. Keen watchers of Sino-Indo affairs say things are far from any sort of resolution yet.
