Noteworthy, this clash video surfaced after India formally confirmed that an incident had taken place along the banks of famous Pangong lake in Ladakh.
Earlier on 15th Aug, news agency PTI had reported that Indian border guards on Tuesday frustrated an attempt by Chinese soldiers to enter Indian territory along the banks of famous Pangong lake in Ladakh resulting in stone pelting that caused minor injuries to people on both sides.
Soldiers of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) tried to enter the Indian side in two areas – Finger Four and Finger Five – twice between 6 am and 9 am. But on both the occasions their attempts were thwarted by alert Indian troops, officials said, as per PTI.
After Chinese troopers found their path blocked by Indian soldiers who formed a human chain, they began hurling stones, prompting a swift retaliation by Indian border guards, the PTI report had added. Personnel from both sides received minor injuries and the situation was brought under control after the customary banner drill under which both sides hold banners before stepping back to their respective positions.
The situation along the banks of the lake has always remained volatile with Chinese troops being intercepted by Indian Army patrol several times after the three-week-long stand-off in the Depsang plains of Daulat Beg Oldie (DBO) in May 2013.
