    10 Indian soldiers, including four officers, released by China

    Military sources earlier revealed that some 76 Army personnel were brutally assaulted by the Chinese Army on Monday night out of which 18 were seriously injured

    New Delhi: Three days after violent clash in Galwan Valley area in Ladakh, Chinese military freed 10 Indian Army personnel, including four officers, to Patrol Point 14 on Thursday evening, sources said

    The 10 Indian Army soldiers included two Majors, two Captains and six jawans from two units, the sources added.

    The development came after both Indian Army and China’s People’s Liberation Army settled an agreement on the release at Major General-level talks. During the discussion, the Indian officers were reportedly assured of the safety of soldiers.

    The discussion on Thursday was believed to be the third round of talks between the Indian and Chinese militaries on disengagement of troops as well as restoring normalcy in areas around the Galwan Valley.

    Sources said that the Chinese Army side had also shown pictures of Indian soldiers held captive in their side.

    The release of the Indian soldiers has brought the tension between the two sides down. However, an official confirmation of the release of 10 Indian Army soldiers is still awaited.

    Defense sources added that another round of discussion likely to be held during the weekend may discuss on disengagement issues.

    Military sources earlier revealed that some 76 Army personnel were brutally assaulted by the Chinese Army on Monday night out of which 18 were seriously injured while 58 of them sustained minor injuries. They said those undergoing treatment were stable now.

    The two armies were engaged in a standoff in Galwan and several other areas of eastern Ladakh since May 5 when the two sides clashed on the banks of the Pangong Tso.

    China has been vehemently opposing to India’s laying a key road in the Finger area around the Pangong Tso Lake besides construction of another road connecting the Darbuk-Shayok-Daulat Beg Oldie road in Galwan Valley.

    The clash in Galwan Valley was the biggest confrontation between the two militaries after their 1967 clashes in Nathu La when India lost around 80 soldiers while the death toll on the Chinese side was over 300.

    All Indian soldiers involved in the deadly clashes with the Chinese army at the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on Monday night have been accounted for, the Indian Army said on Thursday evening.
