Jammu, Jan 10 (Agencies): China had betrayed the concept of friendship, Union Minister Farooq Abdullah said amid reports of 'incursions' into Indian territory in Jammu and Kashmir's Ladakh region.

“China has betrayed the concept of friendship despite the fact that the Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao had promised friendship during his visit to India,” Abdullah said.

The Union Minister had visited Leh on Sunday to review reconstruction work undertaken in the aftermath of the devastating cloudburst and flash floods there in August last year.  

In an interview of Chering Dorjee, former chief executive councillor of Leh Autonomous Hill Development Council, said that Demchok villagers were scared and had fled their homes.

“Currently, many villages in Demchok are empty as there is no security provided to the residents to save them from the haunting shadow of the Dragon. Recently, I along with some administrative officials went to Demchok. But the entire community has left from some villages there,” said Dorjee.

Dorjee also alleged that the residents of Demchok had complained to the army and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) posts about the Chinese incursions, but 'they turned a blind eye towards the grave issue.  Dorjee alleged that the 'ITBP is not doing anything to stop the problem.
