New Delhi, Jan 11 (Agencies): Seeking to play down reports of incursions by Chinese troops into Indian territory, Air Chief Marshal P V Naik on Tuesday said such incidents take place regularly and "make no difference".

Noting that he was not aware of any such particular incident, the Air Chief said, "These things keep happening. During snowfall, even on our thing (side), people go one odd kilometre here and there. It makes no difference."

The IAF chief was talking to reporters on the sidelines of his visit to the annual NCC Republic Day parade camp here.

Chinese troops, in September-October last year, had reportedly entered Gombir area in Demchok region in Jammu and Kashmir and threatened civilian workers building a shed as per plans cleared by the state rural development department.

Army Chief General V K Singh had on Monday said that the "so-called" intrusions take place due to perceptional differences about the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China, an issue which is being addressed by the two countries through discussion.

The Army chief had said that he did not view the incident, which took place about two months back, as an alarming development.
