Tensions between India-China have escalated once again after transgressions by the Chinese Army in Eastern Ladakh.

The tension between China and India is on the rise once again after the Indian Army said that Chinese troops fired shots in the air and attempted to close in on an Indian position in eastern Ladakh. It rejected China's charges that it transgressed across the Line of Actual Control (LAC). On Monday, the People's Liberation Army claimed that Indian troops crossed the LAC and fired warning shots near the Pangong lake.

The last time shots were fired in the region was in 1975, 45 years ago.

While elaborating on the events that transpired on the September 7, 2020, the Indian Army said that Chinese troops attempted to close-in with one of India's forward positions along the LAC. When the Indian troops stopped them, the PLA troops fired a few rounds in the air "in an attempt to intimidate troops”.
