A picture of a man, brutally injured, is doing the rounds on social media with a claim that he is a jawan who was injured in the recent India-China face-off that took place on the night of June 15-16, 2020 in Ladakh.
For all those who are debating on intrusion or no-intrusion, this is a small sample of the price paid for our freedom. Am told by a friend @adgpi that this brave heart Jawan was injured in the recent #IndiaChinaFaceOff or #GalwanValleyFaceOff
May the divine grace be…
