NSA to convene China study group meet on incursion fallout

     National Security Advisor MK Narayanan will hold a meeting of the China Study Group - consisting of top officials including Cabinet Secretary KM Chandrasekhar and Secretaries of Defence, Home and Foreign Ministries - on Thursday (September 17). The meeting is expected to take stock of the situation along the Sino-India border, official sources said. Besides Chandrasekhar, the meeting will be attended by Defence Secretary Pradeep Kumar, Home Secretary G K Pillai, Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao. Top officials of the three armed forces and the Intelligence Bureau will also attend the meeting. The meeting assumes significance in wake of recent reports of incursions by the Chinese army in Ladakh , Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh, involving the air dropping of expired food canes, painting of rocks red among others. Another media report said that two Chinese Sukhoi fighters had transgressed into Indian air space last month. The Indian Air Force, however, says no unscheduled flight inside Indian air space had taken place last month.
