    Indian Army Troops Clashes With Chinese Army In Sikkim

    Around 150 soldiers from both sides were involved in the face-off and it was resolved at the local level

    The soldiers of the Indian Army and Chinese People’s Liberation Army were involved in a tense face-off in Naku La area of North Sikkim.

    The soldiers from both sides sustained minor injuries in the “fierce face-off”. The area is in the Sikkim sector along the Sino-Indo border.

    As per several media reports, four Indian soldiers and seven Chinese troops suffered injuries.

    Around 150 soldiers from both sides were involved in the face-off and it was resolved at the local level.

    This is not the first time the soldiers of both sides have exchanged blows along the border.

    Back in August 2017, Indian and Chinese soldiers threw stones at each other and exchanged blows near Pangong Lake in Ladakh.

    India and China were engaged in a 73-day standoff in Doklam after Chinese troops were building a road from their territory to the Jhamphiri ridgeline.

    On June 16th, 2017 Chinese troops with construction vehicles and road-building equipment began extending an existing road southward in Doklam, a territory which is claimed by both China as well as India’s ally Bhutan.

    On June 18th, 2017, as part of Operation Juniper, about 270 Indian troops armed with weapons and two bulldozers crossed the Sikkim border into Doklam to stop the Chinese troops from constructing the road.

    On August 28th, 2017, both India and China announced that they had withdrawn all their troops from the face-off site in Doklam.
