Indian troops fired at our posts along LAC in Ladakh: PLA
New Delhi: China has claimed that Indian soldiers fired warning shots after crossing the Line of Actual Control in the south bank of Pangong Lake in Ladakh on Monday, days after a series of provocative actions at the LAC by the Chinese army. “The Chinese border guards were forced to take countermeasures to stabilise the situation,” a spokesperson of the People’s Liberation Army has said. It is unclear what these counter-measures were. There has been no response yet from the Indian side.
A spokesperson of the People’s Liberation Army said the Indian army “illegally crossed the LAC and entered the south bank of Pangong Lake and the Shenpao mountain area”.
“During the operation, the Indian Army blatantly fired threats to the patrol personnel of the Chinese border guards who had made representations, and the Chinese border guards were forced to take countermeasures to stabilize the situation on the ground,” the statement read.
Calling it a “serious provocation of a very bad nature”, China said, “We request the Indian side to immediately stop dangerous actions”. (NDTV.com)
