About 20 Indian troops died as a result of the conflict on the border between India and China.  It is reported by the NDTV channel.

It is noted that three people died during the shelling.  Another 17 people were injured, but then were exposed to low temperatures in the highlands, which negatively affected their injuries.

The incident occurred on the night of June 15-16 at the control line in Ladakh.  China opened fire on the Indian military, who, according to the Chinese side, illegally crossed the state border of the PRC, writes Gazeta.ru.

It is noted that at the moment, the troops of India and China conducted a mutual withdrawal after the clashes.

The situation in the border areas of the Union territory of Ladakh escalated after clashes between the military of the two countries on the disputed Indian-Chinese border all May, accompanied by the transfer of additional troops and weapons from each side.  On May 5, a mass brawl took place at a site in East Ladakh, in which about 400 troops from both sides took part.
