Chinese Soldier Held In Ladakh, May Have Entered Inadvertently”

A Chinese army soldier was apprehended by the Indian security forces in Chumar-Demchok area of Ladakh on October 19, and initial reports suggest that he was carrying civil and military documents.

"The PLA soldier has been provided medical assistance including oxygen, food and warm clothes to protect him from the vagaries of extreme altitude and harsh climatic conditions", the statement said. "He will be returned to Chinese Army as per established protocol after following due procedure", as sources told news agency ANI.

The Army said the PLA soldier will be returned after completion of all the formalities. "The issue should not cause new tensions in the border area". The capture comes amid continuous talks of disengagement and de-escalation after a more than six-month-long standoff between India and China.

The latest round of discussions took place a week ago on October 12.

"Both sides agreed to maintain dialogue and communication through military and diplomatic channels, and arrive at a mutually acceptable solution for disengagement as early as possible".

Since the 1962 war between India and China, the two lack a duly demarcated borderline in the Himalayas.

"From the conceptual level down to the behavioural level, there was an entire sort of framework out there". But media sources in China indicate there is no competing perception of what had happened on the Chinese side.

Temperatures at critical mountain peaks and passes along the disputed India-China border have dropped to minus 20 degrees Celsius throwing up a fresh challenge to the thousands of troops amassed by both sides. The Chinese People's Liberation Army also suffered high number of casualties.
