New Delhi: Tensions between the Indian and Chinese fringe troops erupted by and by on Wednesday as warriors of the different sides occupied with a delayed encounter in eastern Ladakh. The go head to head started on the northern bank of the 134-km-long Pangong Tso, 66% of which is constrained by China as it stretches out into Tibet.

According to reporters, patrolling Indian troops were confronted by People's Liberation Army soldiers, who objected to their presence. This then led to a scuffle between the two sides. As the Indian troops held their ground, additional personnel were deployed. Following this, both sides returned to their bases.

India has lodged a complaint and asked for a Border Personnel Meeting to resolve the issue.

The scuffle comes a month ahead of the crucial meetings between PM Modi and Chinese Premier Xi Jinping. This is not the first time that such an incident has transpired. Last year, ahead of Modi-Xi Wuhan summit in April, Chinese troops is said to have breached the Line of Actual Control (LoA) 28 times.

Relations between the two countries remain tense following China's opposition to the abrogation of Article 370.

A day after the Modi government moved to proclaim the express a Union Territory, removing its uncommon status, the Chinese Foreign Ministry put out an announcement in solid resistance. From that point forward, China has been supporting Pakistan in its analysis to the move and has featured that "the gatherings concerned should practice restriction and act with alert, particularly to keep away from activities that singularly change business as usual and worsen the strain".
