Watch Video Of India-china Clash At Ladakh

Sikkim standoff: Video surfaces of clashes between Chinese Army and ITBP in Ladakh

The Army chief's visit came five days after Chinese troops clashed with the Indian Army personnel near Pangong Lake on August 15.

The video shows soldiers pelting stones at each other and getting involved in fisticuffs by the bank of a lake, reportedly the disputed Pangong lake along the India-China border.

The visit assumes significance as it comes amidst ongoing standoff between the two nuclear-armed nations at Dokhlam in the Sikkim sector and on the heels of the August 15 Chinese incursion bid near Pangong Lake.

The clashes in Ladakh are the first of their kind in years.

Sources say there were two dozen Indo-Tibetan Border Police personnel and almost three dozen army men at the spot; the Chinese troops had similar numbers.

India has favored engagement with China to restore peace and tranquility at the border and resolve the stand-off at Doklam which has entered into the third month.


He added, "I just said there was an incident", however, he did not comment on whether stones or rods were used during the clash, as it was seen in the video.

Official sources here have repeatedly said such incidents should not have happened as these were not in the interest of either country.

Sources earlier told India Today that the Ladakh altercation lasted for around an hour and was brought under control after a customary banner drill, following which soldiers of the two nuclear-armed neighbours retreated to the positions.

Indian Army chief, General Bipin Rawat will start a three day visit to Ladakh from Sunday, during which he will review the security in the area, and also attend a ceremony in which President's Colours will be given to battalions of the Ladakh Scouts. Injuries from the fist fight and stone-pelting are partly visible.

China's foreign ministry spokesman said he is "not aware" of the incident, and Beijing urged "the Indian side [to] abide by the LAC and relevant conventions between the two sides". The standoff began after Indian troops moved to stop a PLA road construction in the region mid-June.
