I have my reservations about Microsat R being the target satellite. My guess is either the disabled rimsat or lightweight microsat TD were the scapegoats. Very less chanve of a near 1 tonne satellite is going to serve as target practice.

One noob pooch here. Wiki says china conducted ASAT test in 2007. Risat1 was launched in 2012. So how could they have targeted Risat1 with chinese ASat test? I must be missing something here. they can launch a missile unannounced as well. My opinion is risat-1 was targeted around the doklam incident.
