At Least 20 Indian Soldiers Killed In Violent Face-Off With China In Galwan Valley


At least 20 Indian soldiers have been reportedly martyred in the violent face-off with China in the Galwan valley area in Eastern Ladakh. "Casualty numbers could rise," government Sources were quoted as saying by news agency ANI. So far, reports had confirmed only three deaths - that of an Army officer and two jawans.

Citing sources, news agency PTI pegged the casualty count at 10. "At least 10 Indian Army personnel killed in a violent face-off in Ladakh's Galwan Valley," PTI reported. "No exact numbers but the Chinese side also suffered casualties in Ladakh face-off," government officials confirmed to the agency.


ANI further reported that the Indian intercepts reveal that Chinese side suffered 43 casualties including dead and seriously injured in a face-off in the Galwan valley.

Earlier today, the Ministry of External Affairs confirmed that both, Indian as well as Chinese troops had recorded casualties in the skirmish that took place along the LAC.

“On late-evening and night of June 15, a violent face-off happened as a result of an attempt by the Chinese side to unilaterally change status quo there. Both sides suffered casualties that could have been avoided had an agreement at higher level been scrupulously followed by the Chinese side,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement earlier today.


43 dead on the Chinese side

ANI further reported that the Indian intercepts reveal that Chinese side suffered 43 casualties including dead and seriously injured in a face-off in the Galwan valley. While China has not officially confirmed the casualty count on the side of the PLA, the reports of casualties were confirmed due to increased Chinese chopper activity across the LAC to airlift casualties suffered by them during the face-off with Indian troops in Galwan valley.
