Chinese PLA Soldiers Crossing Into India ‘Pushed Back’ By Ladakh Villagers: WATCH N

A video purportedly showing “Chinese PLA Soldiers” crossing the Indian border and entering Changthang Village in Nyoma area, 135 km east of Leh in Ladakh, has been widely circulated on social media. The video was reportedly filmed by locals present at the site.

In the video, two “Chinese vehicles” and “Chinese soldiers in civilian clothes” can be seen. They reportedly interacted with the locals.

According to a report in  Times of India, Chinese soldiers in civvies objected to the local nomads for allowing their cattle to graze in the area.

EurAsian Times could not independently verify the authenticity of these claims made by TOI or the video.

The Chinese soldiers were pushed back by the local residents and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel after they were informed. The ITBP personnel confronted them and they were forced to retreat, the report said.

Meanwhile, there has been no official statement from the ITBP on the alleged Chinese incursion into the Indian territory. The area is mainly inhabited by Tibetan refugees and is home to Changpa nomads.

Indian and Chinese troops have been locked in a border standoff in Eastern Ladakh for the past seven months. Despite several rounds of military and diplomatic-level talks, the two sides have not reached any consensus yet on disengagement along the Line of Actual Control, the de facto border between the two Asian neighbors.

On June 15, a violent clash between the two armies in the Galwan Valley resulted in the deaths of at least 20 Indian soldiers. The Chinese side did not disclose the figures of their casualties.
