A tin shed structure put up by the Indian troops at Chumar area in Ladakh, three days after the Chinese incursion in Depsang, was the bargaining chip that led to a resolution between the two countries.

Sources said the Indian side started building the structure around the time that Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai called Chinese ambassador Wei Wei on April 18 to his South Block office to put forward India's demand to "restore the status quo" prior to the incursion. The tin shelter was located about 7-8 km ahead of India's most forward permanent structure in the area. China claims the site as its territory, while Delhi claims otherwise.

Mathai decided to call in the Chinese envoy after the Chinese government, under the joint working mechanism, gave "vague" and "non-credible" responses to MEA Joint Secretary Gautam Bambawale. While Mathai and Bambawale made over 25 calls in three weeks, Indian ambassador to China S Jaishankar told Chinese officials that the incident "will affect bilateral relatins", sources said.
