india Updated: Sep 13, 2009 16:44 IST

The ITBP on Sunday denied media reports that the Chinese army has made any incursion into the Uttarakhand border but said security forces were on high alert.

“We have not sighted any incursion by the Chinese army on the Indian side in Uttarakhand,” Indo-Tibeten Border Police DIG Sanjay Singhal said in Dehradun.

However, some civilians mostly shepherds usually come to Indian side during the monsoon season which is not an “unusual” thing on the Uttarakhand-Tibet border particularly in Barahoti area in Chamoli district, Singhal said.

Singhal said ITBP personnel are on high alert and keeping a close watch on the other side of the border.
