Outrage after Uttarakhand shopkeepers recieve Chinese shoes packed in Indian flag boxes

Amid rising Sino-Indian tensions due to the Doklam stand-off, shopkeepers in Uttarakhand have recieved shoes allegedly  from China in boxes bearing the Indian flag.

“The boxes have the Tricolour on top and the base carries some letters in Mandarin, police said, triggering speculation among locals that the move was aimed at humiliating Indians amid a tense standoff between the two countries at Doklam, ” Hindustan Times reported.

Udham Singh Nagar Senior Superintendent of Police Sadanand Date said the police questioned the owner of Tammana Traders in Rudrapur, who said that he bought the shoes from a distributor in Delhi and did not know their place of origin. “We would be questioning the dealer in New Delhi to ascertain the origin of these shoes,” said the SSP.
