In tune with the conflict, the Indian and Chinese military representatives did not hold the Border Personnel Meeting (BPM) on August 15.

An Indian intelligence officer said the confrontation occurred after Indian soldiers intercepted a Chinese patrol that veered into Indian-held territory after apparently it lost its way due to bad weather.

IT and law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad recently held a top-level meeting to assess the situation with regard to the Chinese engagement in India's electronics and IT sector, according to sources.

A Chinese state-run daily, Global Times, in an editorial said, "India behaving like a bully, which has taken the sovereign state of Sikkim into its territory and with so-called protection of Bhutan, limiting its sovereignty".

The decades-old feud between India and China has a new addition: Doklam in the Sikkim section where both armies have been engaged in a standoff since mid-June. The standoff has been ongoing for more than 50 days, after Indian troops stopped the Chinese Army from constructing a road in the area. It shares a 220.7 km border with China, 95.6 km with Nepal and 32 km with Bhutan, and is connected to the country through a narrow 27 km stretch of land known as the chicken's neck. New Delhi has expressed concern over the road building, apprehending that it may allow Chinese troops to cut India's access to its northeastern states. China and India fought a border war in 1962 and much of their frontier remains unsettled despite several rounds of official-level talks.

India's worries over Chinese repeated border crossings into Kashmir's Ladakh region has seen massive Indian army built up in the cold desert in recent years.
