ABP News cannot verify the authenticity of the video.
The video emerged a day after the Indian government informed the Parliament about the scuffle between Indian and Chinese soldiers at Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh that took place on December 9.
However, NDTV reported, citing the Indian Army, that the video is not related to the Tawang clash.
What is shown in the clip is believed to have taken place at the Yangtse sector near the Line of Actual Control (LAC), sometime after the clashes at Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh in June 2020, the report added.
On Tuesday, in a statement in both houses of the Parliament, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that no casualty on the Indian side has been confirmed and no soldier was seriously injured in the brawl. He said that a Flag Meeting between the Commanders of both sides took place on December 11 and that the matter would be discussed at diplomatic levels too.
Earlier, the United States supported India’s efforts at controlling the situation after the fresh clash between Indian and Chinese troops along the Line of Actual Control. In a statement, Pentagon Press Secretary Pat Ryder said, “We will continue to remain steadfast in our commitment to ensure the security of our partners. We fully support India’s efforts to control the situation.”
“Department of Defense continues to watch developments along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) at the India-China border, We have seen People’s Republic of China (PRC) continues to amass forces & build military infrastructure along the so-called LAC,” he added.
