To tackle the Chinese troops, around 70 Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel were deployed in the region.
India asserts that the border dispute covers nearly 4,057-km long line of actual control, while China claims that it is confined to about 2,000km to the area of Arunachal Pradesh, which it refers to as Southern Tibet.
Even last month, there were reports of the Chinese troops entering almost 25 kms into India. The troops invaded the area of Burtse in Ladakh. A patrol of Indian troops noticed the People's Liberation Army (PLA) personnel while moving from their base, at an altitude of around 17,000 feet.
In 2014 alone, 334 incidents of Chinese troops intrusion into Indian border have been reported.
