Army Chief In Ladakh, Kovind To Visit Monday For Award Ceremony …


Days after Indian and Chinese troops got involved in a scuffle in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ladakh, a video of the stone pelting surfaced Saturday, but army sources however said they cannot confirm its authenticity.

The video shows soldiers pelting stones at each other and getting involved in fisticuffs by the bank of a lake, reportedly the disputed Pangong lake along the India-China border. A scuffle had taken place between the Indian and Chinese troops this week, on Independence day, which saw stones being pelted from both sides.

The incident took place Tuesday when Chinese soldiers tried to cross the Line of Actual Control. A Border Personnel Meeting Wednesday however saw both sides agreeing to take steps to ensure peace along the border and leave the incidents behind, according to sources.

Indian Army chief, Gen. Bipin Rawat will start a three day visit to Ladakh from Sunday, during which he will review the security in the area, and also attend a ceremony in which President’s Colours will be given to battalions of the Ladakh Scouts.

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.

Meanwhile, the standoff between China and India in the Sikkim sector has been continuing since June 16.
