Both sides stuck to their stated positions. However, they were interrupted by the Indian forces and were sent back.

Only a mere 100-odd metres separate the Indian and an equal number of Chinese soldiers who engage in an eye-ball-to-eye-ball confrontation, even as the Indian contingent of 10 to 12 soldiers link hands to mount a human wall to maintain the relay vigil.

The Indian Army and China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) held a flag meet at Nathu La last week to sort things out, but in vain.

After almost 30 minutes of facing off, the two sides retreated to their positions, he said.

China has repeatedly asked India to unilaterally withdraw from the Doklam area, or else face the prospect of an escalation.

The two nuclear-armed neighbours fought a brief war in 1962 in India's border state of Arunachal Pradesh.

But Beijing has said India had no role to play in the area and diplomatic efforts to defuse the crisis have not made much headway. China has already constructed an access road up to the last point of lake. "There was some stone pelting from the Chinese side but the situation was quickly brought under control", he told AFP on condition of anonymity. Neither side appears to have fired a shot during this, but brawls were reported. The area is disputed between China and Bhutan.

The growing engagement of Chinese companies within India's burgeoning electronics and IT industry - worth almost $22 billion, according to a recent study by industry chamber CII - has sounded alarm bells within the government, especially as it is felt that much of this can be used to gain unlawful access to critical information about individuals, businesses, and government set-ups. The part held by China is contiguous to Tibet.
