India Releases Chinese Soldier Who Had Strayed Across Border
The Indian Army handed over Wang Long to their Chinese counterpart late night yesterday in the general Chushul area in Ladakh
The Indian Army has returned an apprehended Chinese soldier to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) on late Tuesday night. Wang Long had landed up in the wrong side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) on October 19 in Demchok in eastern Ladakh. He was immediately taken into custody by the Indian army after he was found in the disputed area.
After Long underwent the mandatory medical examination and basic investigation, he was let off to the Chinese side in the Chushul area.
India and China have been embroiled in a border tussle since June that started with a physical face off between the two sides in Galwan in Ladakh. With seven rounds of military and diplomatic level talks till date between the Narendra Modi government and the Xi Jingping administration, there has still been no resolve of disengagement from the Chinese side. Repeated LAC transgression attempts by the PLA have been foiled by the Indian security forces.
With the return of the Chinese soldier, peace forces from both the nations hope that this initiative by India will yield a positive outcome for the two nations.
