"The Chinese embassy in India has requested the Indian side to notify the relevant information," the Chinese foreign ministry said in a statement.
"We will continue following the development of the incident closely," the ministry said.
After the arrest, the Chinese foreign embassy in New Delhi was quick to issue an advisory for Chinese nationals to abide by local laws and steer clear of restricted areas.
The advisory did not directly mention the incident, nor did it give any other details of violations, but said Chinese nationals had been detained for violating laws.
The advisory warned citizens to not carry prohibited items like rhino horns, not working in India illegally and to avoid restricted areas, saying such violations could result in jail time or fines.
The advisory also made it clear that it would not tolerate any violations of laws on Indian soil.
"The embassy can protect the safety of Chinese citizens and the rightful claims of Chinese enterprises and personnel in India...but (we) cannot tolerate any illegal behaviour," it said.
