A video surfaced on Saturday showing dramatic visuals of how the Indian Army countered China's incursion bid in Ladakh on August 15.

The stand-off has so far involved about 300 soldiers on each side standing a few hundred feet apart.

India on Friday confirmed that a scuffle did take place between Indian and Chinese troops near Pangong Lake on the Ladakh border.

The brief confrontation was resolved after Indian and Chinese sides retreated to their respective positions, he added.

Asked if China has shared hydrological data with India in the backdrop of floods in Assam, Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said there is an existing expert-level mechanism, established in 2006, and there are two MoUs under which China is expected to share hydrological data on rivers Satluj and Brahmaputra with India during the flood season of May 15 to June 15. Chinese troops had managed to enter up to Finger Four area in the region of Ladakh from where they were sent back. India has protested the construction of a road by the Chinese military in the area claimed by its ally Bhutan, fearing it would allow Beijing to cut off India's access to its northeastern states.
