Coimbatore, Sep 19 (ANI): Activists of a right wing students union staged a demonstration Coimbatore against the alleged incursions by the Chinese army into Indian territory.

Activists of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad or All India Student's Council gathered in Coimbatore city headquarters with banners and placards and demanded central government to take steps to protect the country from Chinese aggression.

" We request the central government and Tamil Nadu government to take important steps against China to protect our nation," said Saravanan, a protestor.

Officials sources have said that Chinese troops entered nearly 1.5 kilometres into the Indian territory near Mount Gya, which is recognised as the international border by India and China, and painted the word 'China' in Cantonese on the boulders and rocks there with red spray paint. The incursions were reported from the area generally referred in the Chumar sector in east of Leh.

The 22,420 ft Mount Gya, also known as "fair princess of snow" by the Army is located at the tri-junction of Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir, Spiti in Himachal Pradesh, and Tibet. Its boundary was marked during the British era and is regarded as International border by the two countries.

The border patrol discovered the red paint markings on various rocks and boulders along the Zulung La (pass) on July 31 and the Chinese had entered into the area and written "China" all over the place, the sources said.

Indian soldiers later erased the text, writing 'India' instead. (ANI)
