Video shows high altitude clash between Indian and Chinese troops in Sikkim
New Delhi : Days after deadly clash at Galwan Valley, a video showing Indian and Chinese troops engaging in stand-off at a high altitude location in Sikkim has emerged on internet.
A Chinese officer is punched by an Indian jawan as soldiers of both sides brawl in the mobile phone video that lasts over five minutes.
In the video, the soldiers from both sides can be seen shouting "Go back" and "don't fight". However, a physical fight appears in the video.
The fight solves after an Indian officer asked the Chinese soldier who was beaten in the fight about his well-being.
It is still not known when the video was shot but it has come to light at a time when the nation is brewing in anger over the death of 20 Indian soldiers at Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh.
On June 15, 20 soldiers were killed in the line of duty and 76 were injured in a deadly clash that broke out over the Chinese refusing to remove a tent as part of what was agreed on June 6.
Indian soldiers were assaulted with crude and barbaric weapons used by the Chinese troops, including nail-studded clubs, spiked rods and stones. Army sources said 45 Chinese soldiers were killed or injured in the brawl along Galwan River.
During military talks held at Galwan after the clash, the Chinese army admitted that their commanding officer was killed – the first admission by China of any casualty.
