New Delhi: The news of a violent clash between the Indian Army and the People's Liberation Army (PLA) of China on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) has surfaced once again


There have been reports of fresh clashes between Indian and Chinese troops in Nakula in Sikkim, thousands of kilometers from Ladakh, where India and China have been engaged in a massive military stand-off on the LAC for the last several months.


The report said that the clash took place last week when Chinese soldiers of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) attempted to sneak inside the Indian side of the border. About 20 Chinese soldiers were injured in this encounter, while 4 Indian soldiers were also picked up injuries.


Indian army personnel foiled an attempt to infiltrate by the Chinese troops, which led to physical clashes, with soldiers on both sides being reportedly injured.


Sources said that no weapon was used during the clash. The situation is now reported to be under control.


The skirmish took place just days before the ninth round of military talks between India and China, which took place on Sunday. The Corps Commander-level talks lasted approximately 16 hours and focused on the withdrawal of troops from all friction points in eastern Ladakh.


The talks, which started at around 10:30 am, concluded at 2:30 pm.


Sources said that India told China during the talks that it would be necessary for Beijing to take the initiative to carry forward the process of de-escalation at friction points with LAC in Ladakh.


Explain that amid the ongoing border standoff, around 100,000 Indian and Chinese troops are stationed in eastern Ladakh.


In June last year, troops from both sides clashed in the Galvan Valley, killing 20 Indian soldiers and more than 40 PLA personnel. This was the first incident of a border accident between India and China in nearly five decades.
