Shooting at the Ladakh border between China and India has taken place on the evening of 7th September after a long gap of 45 years as China desperately trying to occupy the mountains, blames India according to the news published in different outlets. China has vehemently opposed the remarks and claimed that India has been trying to occupy the area for a few days.
The last shooting took place at Arunachal Pradesh on the Indo-China border in 1975. Then for 45 years there was no shooting at the border.
After 45 years of firing on the Indian border, on Monday evening, a large Chinese force tried to attack the Indian forces in the Churo area of the mouth of the Reaching La Ridgeline. They had with them a kind of terrible weapon called rod, mugur, barsha, guandao. It is believed that the Chinese forces were planning a barbaric attack like Galwan incident.
What happened that day:
Monday at 6 p.m. one by one, the Chinese soldiers began to accumulate in the Line of Actual Control adjacent to the Indian Post near Pangong Lake in Ladakh. India once again vehemently opposed the issue of stockpiling troops, including arms, along the Line of Actual Control without provocation. Chinese troops were told to retreat.
When China was forced to retreat under pressure from the Indian army, they fired 15 rounds into the air. The last shooting took place at Arunachal Pradesh on the Indo-China border in 1975. Four jawans of Assam Rifles were martyred. Then for 45 years there was no shooting at the border. Even in the recent Galwan attack, Chinese forces did not fire. They used the Guando weapon indiscriminately on that trip. In the past, the Chinese forces have also aided the Uyghur Muslim persecution.
According to sources, the Indian side did not retaliate. It is believed that the move was made by China to take over the mouthpiece of Reaching La Ridge.
China has been desperately trying to occupy the region for three days. They also destroyed a barbed-wire fence in the area on Monday. But the didn't do much batter as the occupation of the Moldo area south of Pangong Lake is to India.
China's firing, however, was an effort to resist the attempts to occupy by India violating the Line of Actual Control; stated China in response. India has vehemently opposed the remarks too.
China also threatened war in the Global Times on Monday. The Chinese spokesman wrote in a threatening tone, "You are doing a dangerous exercise by violating Chinese policy standing on the edge of the abyss."
