New Delhi: The Central government on Monday, April 15, dismissed news report claiming that China is readying for incursion at 19 spots along the Line of Actual Control. Central government called the report misleading. 

Report claimed that the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) has identified 19 spots along the Line of Actual Control from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh. The report claimed that the areas may witness a transgression by China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) as the snow melts. The report said that the ITBP has alerted the central government about the same.
