Indian Army Colonel and two other soldiers Killed in Violent face off with Chinese Troops- “India-China Stand-off”

In the continuing dispute between India China on LAC, Indian Army Colonel and two Other Soldiers of the Indian Army lost their lives during a violent face-off between troops in the Galwan area in Eastern Ladakh on Monday night.

“During the de-escalation process ongoing in the Galwan Valley, a violent face-off took place Monday night with casualties on both sides. The loss of lives on the Indian side includes an officer and two soldiers,” the Army said in a statement.

Senior military officials from the two sides are currently meeting at the venue to defuse the situation, the army said, signalling that the efforts to stablish the situation is still work in progress..

These are the first Indian casualties in a clash with the PLA since 1975 when an Indian patrol was ambushed by Chinese troops in Arunachal Pradesh.

Military commanders of the two armies, Major General Abhijit Bapat, commander of the Karu-based HQs 3 Infantry Division and his Chinese counterpart are holding talks at the site of the clash to defuse tensions.

All the deaths are from thrown stones and rods that were used by the soldiers, people familiar with the matter said on condition of anonymity. The army did not comment on this. However, this won’t be the first time the two armies have engaged in fisticuffs or used stones as missiles to attack each other in the area.

In Delhi, Defence Minister Rajnath singh reviewed the current operational situation after the clash on the LAC, along with the Chief of Defence Staff Gen Bipin Rawat and the three service chiefs. Foreign Minister S Jaishankar was also present. Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane had cancelled his scheduled visit to Pathankot on Tuesday.

The encounter happened along the contested Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh where rival soldiers were caught in a standoff that began with a confrontation between rival patrols near Pangong Tso on the night of May 5-6.

The Indian Army is said to have suffered three casualties, including a colonel, in the sector on Monday, said one person familiar with the matter. Both sides suffered fatal casualties on Monday, claimed another person familiar with the matter. Both asked not to be named. The number of Chinese casualties wasn’t immediately known.

Mr. Zhao said, “We both agree to resolve this issue through dialogue and consultation and make efforts for easing the situation and upholding the peace and security along the border area.”

Former Northern Army commander Lt Gen DS Hooda (retd) flagged concerns about the “serious escalation” along the LAC saying that it reflected the heightened tensions on the ground. “This will require diplomatic intervention,” he said.

The talks took place at two locations along the LAC — brigadier-ranked officers met in the Galwan area and Colonel-ranked officers in Hot Springs — as part of continuing efforts to resolve the standoff.

Last week Army chief General Naravane said disengagement of Indian and Chinese forces was taking place in a “phased manner” along the LAC where the situation was “under control”.

Ministry of external affairs (MEA) Gives warning- Pak over reported arrest of two High Commission staffers

The two Indian high commission officials in Pakistan who had gone missing early on 15-06-2020. will be released soon, the Indian mission has been told by Pakistani authorities, people familiar with the development told defence sources.

In a strong demarche that referred to media reports on the arrest of the two high commission staffers, the external affairs ministry had told Haider Shah that there should be no interrogation or harassment of the Indian officials. India also underlined that it was Pakistan’s responsibility to ensure safety and security of the Diplomatic Mission’s personnel.

“The Pakistani side was asked to return the two officials along with the official car to the High Commission immediately,” a government source.

For the next six to seven hours, the external affairs ministry in New Delhi and the high commission in Islamabad repeatedly flagged the case to Pakistan’s foreign office. But Pakistani foreign office did not give any details, claiming that they were still “looking into the matter”.

Indian officials had suspected that the high commission staffers had been picked up by Pakistan’s security agencies when they went missing earlier on monday. Their detention was suspected to be a case of tit-for-tat since New Delhi had expelled two officials posted in Pakistan high commission for spying.
