India inflicted heavy casualties on Chinese troops in Galwan: Rajnath Singh in LS

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on September 15 briefed members of Lok Sabha about the India-China border issues in the second day of the Monsoon Session.

He pointed to the violent standoff at the Ladakh's Galwan Valley in June 15 by saying that Indian soldiers laid down their lives to ensure Chinese designs are foiled.

"Given the growing friction along the Line of Actual Control, the senior commanders of the two sides in a meeting on 6 June agreed on a process of disengagement that involved reciprocal actions.

Both sides also agreed to respect and abide by the Line of Actual Control and not undertake any activity to alter the status quo.

However, in violation of this, the Chinese side created a violent face-off on 15 June at Galwan," he said.
