54 Years In India, Chinese Soldier Was Dead In PLA Records


Wang Qi, the People’s Liberation Army(PLA) solider who spent 54 years in India, may be back home in China but the drama around him is far from over. He was expecting retirement benefits from Chinese Army but they are on hold as he was declared ‘dead’ on official records, said sources.

His family back in Balaghat, MP, has its own battles. Wang Qi, who is now visiting his family, told TOI: “I would be grateful to the Indian government if they could at least provide caste certificates to my children and grandchildren in MP. They have been deprived of their rights due to this.”

And back in China, a different struggle is on for his dues. To clear his record, PLA has ordered an inquiry into his disappearance from duty in January 1963, two months after the India-China War, and the circumstances under which he was considered dead, said sources.The PLA HQ has reportedly sought an explanation from Wang Qi’s former platoon commander, Wang Zuguo. He was among the hundreds who welcomed Wang Qi at Shaanxi a year ago. Read More…
