New Delhi: An Indian Army officer and two jawans were killed in a violent clash with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley of Ladakh.

There has been a deadlock in East Ladakh along the India-China border for more than a month. The troops of two Himalayan nations have been ranged against each other in the remote snow desert of Ladakh since April in the most serious border flare-ups for years after Chinese patrols advanced into the Indian side of the de facto border.
In view of this violent clash between the troops of the two countries in the Eastern Ladakh region along the border of India and China, the Defence Minister Rajnath Singh held a meeting with the Chief of Defense Staff General and Chief of Army Staff here today. The situation was reviewed in the meeting with Chief of Defense Staff General Bipin Rawat and Army Chief Manoj Mukund Narwane.
