NEW DELHI: Defence minister Rajnath Singh told both houses of the Parliament that the Indian Army stopped the troops of the Chinese Army along the Line of Actual Control in Tawang sector in Arunachal Pradesh. He said that the Indian soldiers were not seriously injured in the clash in Tawang and they intervened in time.

"On December 9 in Yangtse area of Tawang sector, PLA troops encroached upon and attempted to change status quo. This attempt was tackled by our troops in a determined manner. Our troops bravely stopped PLA from encroaching upon our territory and forced them to go back to their post," he told Parliament.

"In this face-off, few soldiers on both sides suffered injuries. I'd like to stress that none of our soldiers died or suffered any serious injury. Due to the timely intervention of Indian military commanders, PLA soldiers have retreated to their own locations," he said.

"This matter has also been taken up with China through diplomatic channels. I want to assure the House that our forces are committed to guard our borders and ready to thwart any attempt that will be made to challenge it," he added.
