Amid border standoff, Indian Army hands over lost animals to China in a humane gesture

The border standoff notwithstanding, in a humane gesture, Indian Army handed over yaks and calves which had strayed across the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Arunachal Pradesh to China.

Taking to Twitter, Eastern Command said 13 Yaks and four Calves that strayed across the LAC on August 31 in East Kameng of Arunachal Pradesh to China on September 7. Chinese officials present thanked Indian Army for the compassionate gesture.

Indian Army incidentally in a heartwarming gesture rescued three Chinese nationals in North Sikkim on Friday after they lost their way “in Plateau area of North Sikkim at an altitude of 17,500 feet”.

“Realising danger to the lives of the Chinese citizens which included two men and one woman in sub-zero temperatures, the soldiers of Indian Army immediately reached out and provided medical assistance including oxygen, food and warm clothes to protect them from the vagaries of extreme altitude and harsh climatic conditions (sic), ” the Army said in a statement.

Meanwhile, contrary to China’s claims, India denied firing ‘warning shots’ at the LAC where Indian and Chinese troops have been engaged in stand-off for over three months. The statement came hours after China’s PLA alleged that Indian troops were illegally crossing the border at the shore of the God Pao Mountain area and firing shots.
