Let me tell you that on the night of June 15, a team of Indian Army went to talk to the Chinese Army at Petroling Point-14 of Galvan Valley in Ladakh. During this time, Chinese soldiers sitting ambush attacked the Indian Army contingent. In this violent clash, 20 soldiers of the Indian Army were killed, while China also suffered heavy losses.
