Indian, Chinese troops seen in tussle in Ladakh on Aug 15

Sikkim standoff: Video surfaces of clashes between Chinese Army and ITBP in Ladakh

Retorting to the video showing skirmish between Indian and Chinese forces in Ladakh, Defence Expert P.K. Sehgal on Sunday said that the visuals have vindicated New Delhi's stand made by the Indian Army on Independence Day.

The video, which has been widely circulated on social media, shows many soldiers from the two countries punching and kicking each other and throwing stones on August 15 during a scuffle.

Amid the tensions, the president, Ram Nath Kovind, in his maiden official tour, will visit Ladakh to award the "President's Colors" honor to the batallions of the Ladakh Scouts, an infantry regiment of the Indian Army. China had tried to build a road at Doklam, the tri-junction between India, China and Bhutan which was stopped by the Indian Army.

After Chinese troopers found their path blocked by Indian soldiers who formed a human chain, they began hurling stones, prompting swift retaliation by Indian border guards.

The pelting of stones took place when the two sides were retreating after a face-off at Finger Four and Finger Five near Pangong Lake on August 15.

At least 8 injured in Russian Federation knife attack
Surgut, about 2,100km (1,300 miles) east of Moscow in the Khanty-Mansiysk area of Siberia, has a population of more than 350,000. Police officers are attempting to establish the attacker's motive and are investigating claims he was mentally ill.

Personnel from both sides received minor injuries and the situation was brought under control after the customary banner drill under which both sides hold banners before stepping back to their respective positions.

The incident occurred at Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh, and was caught on a smartphone camera and shared by Manu Pubby of The Print. This area has been a bone of contention between India and China as both claim it to be a part of their territory.

Calling the Chinese Army as undisciplined, P.K. Sehgal said that the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) is becoming a rouge army and that they should be ashamed of themselves of resorting to stone pelting. The Line of Actual Control passes through the lakes.

Indian forces are now armed with high-speed interceptor boats, bought from the U.S., which can accommodate almost 15 soldiers and are equipped with radars, infra-red and GPS systems.

Ladakh shares an open border with both Pakistan and China.
