Union Ministry of Defence rejected China’s claim that the Indian Army crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and fired ‘warning shots’ near the Pangong Lake in eastern Ladakh, stressing that India is committed to disengagement and de-escalating the situation at the LAC. Chinese troops in eastern Ladakh fired shots in the air late on Monday (September 7) while trying to close in on a forward Indian post, the Indian Army said on Tuesday (September 8), asserting it was an attempt at intimidation and that despite a grave provocation the Indian troops exercised restraint and acted in a responsible manner.

China had, last night, accused Indian soldiers of firing warning shots in the air during a confrontation. It had also claimed that Chinese troops took ‘countermeasures’. “It is the PLA that has been blatantly violating agreements and carrying out aggressive manoeuvres, while engagement at the military, diplomatic and political level is in progress,” said India, accusing the Chinese People’s Liberation Army of fresh provocation after a series of attempts at Pangong Tso over the past two weeks.
