India-china face-off: Chinese soldiers have killed three Indian soldiers, including the Commanding Officer of a battalion at the ongoing face-off between Indian Army and China’s People’s Liberation Army in Ladakh took a violent turn on Monday night.
“During the de-escalation process underway in the Galwan Valley, a violent face-off took place last night with casualties on both sides. The loss of lives on the Indian side includes an officer and two soldiers. Senior military officials of the two sides are currently meeting at the venue to defuse the situation,” Indian Army said in a statement.
Details of fatalities on the Chinese side are not yet known. PTI reported that there was no firing between the two sides. After 1975, this is the first violent incident on the India-China border in which fatalities have taken place.
Sources stated that the Commanding Officer, a Junior Commissioned Officer, and a soldier were killed in a violent battle executed by the Chinese side that have refused to leave the Galwan valley and are sitting inside Indian territory.
A large number of Indian and Chinese troops were engaged in a face-to-face situation in Galwan Valley for the last five weeks. The incident comes days after Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane said both sides have disengaged from Galwayn Valley. This is the story of India-china face-off in Ladakh.
