The incident has sparked a standoff with Indian troops since Wednesday. The situation is very tense at the LAC, where both sides have set up banners. The Chinese were trying to move deeper but the Indian Army and ITBP prevented that.

According to reports, over 50 PLA soldiers halted the construction of an irrigation canal claiming that permission had to be obtained for such an endeavour.

Indian officials however reminded the Chinese that as per agreements between the two countries, permission was to be taken only if the construction is for defensive purpose.

The PLA troops are facing over 70 army and ITBP men.

This is not the first time that the PLA has stopped construction in the area. In 2014, the PLA succeeded in stopping the construction of a small irrigation canal at Nilung Nalla.
