The Indian Express reported that People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers and the Indian Army personnel confronted each other near the Naku La sector, ahead of Muguthang.
“There was a display of aggressive behaviour and soldiers on both sides sustained minor injuries in the face-off,” The Indian Express added.
It further added the face-off ended after the two armies communicated between them at the local level.
“The face-off was “temporary and short duration” in nature and was not a stand-off. Such incidents occur wherever there are some unresolved boundary issues, but this was after a long time,” The Indian Express further reported.
It may be mentioned here that the face-off came after almost three years after the 73-day long Doklam stand-off between India and China.
Naku La is a pass in North Sikkim at an altitude of more than 5,000 metres above Mean Sea Level.
