The minister, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government had no choice but to act to stop the Chinese road activity in the region because it had come too close for comfort.

China did not comment directly on the reported incident, but called on India to comply with earlier agreements and help maintain peace and stability along the border.
