India-China tiff : Kailash Mansarovar Yatra through Sikkim stopped

The Chinese army on Monday accused the Indian military of provoking tension along the Line of Actual Control in Sikkim, where the two sides were reportedly involved in a tense confrontation earlier this month. Indian and Chinese troops scuffled near the Doka La area in the first week of June before soldiers from Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) damaged bunkers on the Indian side. The stand-off in Sikkim comes at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Washington and is expected to negotiate a deal to buy American surveillance drones and reinvigorate strategic ties, moves that could rile Beijing. The confrontation in Sikkim snowballed with the Chinese side deciding to stop last week the Kailash Mansarovar yatra through Sikkim that Indian pilgrims take to travel to Tibet.
