Finally, China has confessed for the first time that Chinese soldiers were also killed in a clash in Galvan on 15 June 2020. China on Friday acknowledged for the first time that four of its soldiers were killed in a bloody clash with Indian soldiers in June 2020. China will give the award in honor of these slain soldiers.
Let me tell you that in June last year, there was a violent clash between the Indian and Chinese soldiers in Galvan valley in eastern Ladakh. In this skirmish, 20 Indian soldiers were killed.
For the last one year, China has been exposing the news of its soldiers being killed. Among the killed Chinese soldiers were one battalionandar and three soldiers. China has given the names of 4 soldiers killed. The names of these soldiers are Chen Hojangoon, Chen Xiangsang, Xiao Siar, Arts Zhuoran.
Chinese media have described the deaths of these soldiers as a “furious struggle” against “foreign troops”.
Till now, Chinese officials used to talk about being injured, but how many soldiers have died is not clear, while India also released the names of its 20 martyred soldiers. But China kept silence.
Army of India and China withdrawn from eastern Ladakh
There has been tremendous tension between the Indian and Chinese military for nearly 9 months. Indian and Chinese troops have retreated on the Line of Actual Control in the eastern Ladakh sector. The withdrawal process of Indian and Chinese forces from the northern and southern sides of Lake Pangang So in eastern Ladakh is continuing, which will be completed by 20 February.
How did the whole incident happen?
Sources were quoted as saying that on 15 June 2020, the Indian 3rd Infantry Quazanandar and several senior officers were present in the East Ladakh sector near the Y junction of the Shyok and Galvan rivers. There was a dialogue between the two countries, so these officers were present there. Indian security forces, including 16 Bihar regiments, were asked to ensure that China removes its post, after which a small patrol was sent to deliver the message.
Sources say there were 10–12 soldiers at the Chinese Observation Post, who were asked by the Indian Patrol to leave, as decided in the high-level military negotiations. The Chinese army refused to do so and Petrol returned to inform his unit. By then, 50 Indian youths, including 16 Bihar’s running officer Colonel Santosh Babu, went to convince the Chinese soldiers that they would go back because they were on Indian soil. The soldiers on the Chinese post called their jawans back in the Galvan valley. After this the debate started and the Chinese soldiers sitting in the ruling attacked the Indian soldiers.
