Neither Indian soldiers nor Chinese soldiers died in the India-China face-off; the incident has been taken up at the diplomatic level: Rajnath Singh

According to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, India had raised the face-off between Indian and Chinese forces in the Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh on December 9 through diplomatic channels. In Lok Sabha, Singh stated that both sides had sustained minor injuries, but no Indian soldier had been seriously injured or killed.

The PLA troops crossed (Atikraman) the Line of Actual Control at Yangtse area of Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang sector on December 9, trying to alter the status quo to their advantage. In response to this attempt, our troops responded with determination. In this face-off, there was physical combat. In spite of the PLA’s bravery, our troops were able to stop the incursion, forcing them to return to their positions. The fight resulted in the injuries of soldiers on both sides. There was no death or severe injury to an Indian soldier,” Singh assured the House.

PLA soldiers were forced to retreat as a result of the timely intervention of the Indian military commander. In response to the incident, the local commander of the area held a flag meeting with his Chinese counterpart on December 11. In order to maintain peace, the Chinese side has been warned against such actions. In addition, the matter has been raised at a diplomatic level,” Singh stated.

We are confident that our Army will be able to defend the territorial integrity of our country. As a result, our Army is prepared to deal with any transgression. “I am confident that the House will support our armed forces’ courage and bravery,” said the Minister of Defence.

On Tuesday, Opposition MPs demanded a discussion on the December 9 incident and a statement from the Prime Minister regarding the incident. There had been a ruckus that had resulted in the temporary adjournment of both Houses.

The issue is expected to be discussed by Singh in the Rajya Sabha at 2 p.m.

During the early hours of December 9, Indian and Chinese troops clashed, beating each other up with sticks and canes. This is the closest encounter between the two countries since the deadly Galwan incident in eastern Ladakh in June 2020. Several Indian soldiers were injured during the attack and are presently receiving treatment in a hospital in Guwahati, according to sources.
