NEW DELHI: Days after Indian and Chinese troops got involved in a shuffle in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ladakh, a video of the stone pelting surfaced on Saturday, but army sources however said they cannot confirm its authenticity.

The 72-second video shows soldiers pelting stones at each other and getting involved in fisticuffs by the bank of a lake.

The two-hour long scuffle took place between the Indian and Chinese troops this week which saw stones being pelted from both sides on August 15 near Pangong Lake in Ladakh.

The incident took place on Tuesday when Chinese soldiers tried to cross the Line of Actual Control.

A Border Personnel Meeting on Wednesday however saw both sides agreeing to take steps to ensure peace along the border and leave the incidents behind, according to sources.

Indian Army chief, Gen. Bipin Rawat will start a three day visit to Ladakh from Sunday, during which he will review the security in the area, and also attend a ceremony in which President’s Colours will be given to battalions of the Ladakh Scouts.

Meanwhile, a standoff with China in Sikkim sector has been continuing since June 16.
