Two Chinese helicopters on September 27 crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC)- the de-facto border between China and India, sources said.

According to reports, the transgression happened near Ladakh trig heights which is also known as Trade junction, which connects Ladakh with Tibet.

The sources further revealed that both the helicopters stayed in the Indian Territory for about 10 minutes before heading back.

In March this year, according to intelligence reports the Chinese Army violated the Indian airspace four times in a month, with People’s Liberation Army choppers crossing over the LAC in various parts of Northern India.

In a massive strength build-up, the Chinese helicopters reportedly entered the Indian airspace along the LAC near Uttarakhand’s Barahoti, Trig Heights and Depsang valley in Ladakh and Burtse in northern Ladakh.
