Soldiers of China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) attempted to cross the Indian border in Ladakh but were thwarted by Indian soldiers who formed a human chain, after which the Chinese troops resorted to stone pelting on the Indian forces.
According to reports, Chinese soldiers attempted to enter Indian territory along the banks of the famous Pangong lake in Ladakh in two areas, Finger Four and Finger Five but their attempt was foiled by Indian forces in both areas.
The stone hurling from the Chinese side prompted a swift retaliation by Indian border guards and personnel from both sides sustained minor injuries. As Chinese troops reached as far as Finger Four area, the situation was brought under control after a customary banner drill which calls for both sides to step back to their respective positions.
The Pangong Lake area in Ladakh has also been contested by both India and China as China claims that the area is a part of Aksai Chin.
Indian forces are fully prepared for any trespass on lake property, with high-speed interceptor boats bought from the US that are equipped with radars, infra-red and GPS systems and can accommodate nearly 15 soldiers.
The recent incursion in Ladakh comes in the wake of a continued standoff at the Sikkim border between India and China, as China calls for the withdrawal of Indian troops from the Doklam plateau region that is contested between China and Bhutan. As the standoff continues, several veiled threats have been published in Chinese media, warning of a possible military confrontation between India and China.
