The news of 100 Chinese soldiers were killed in the Galwan Valley clash has been circulating on various media and social media websites.
The claim has been attributed to the former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Yang Jinali.
It’s worth mentioning that the news has not been published by any credible website or news media portal.
While China is denying any death or injuries to its army, Yang claims that more than 100 Chinese soldiers were killed by the Indian Army in the Galwan Valley on June 15, but the Chinese government is not deliberately releasing the figures.
In a series of events, Zhao Lijian, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson when asked did not even acknowledge that there were casualties on their end.
The Editor-in-Chief of Chinese state media Global Times accepted the casualties but did not reveal any figures.
Earlier, Indian officials citing some US intelligence reports had said at least 35 dead and injured on Chinese side during the clash.
Hence, the news of 100 Chinese soldiers killed in the Galwan Valley clash that doing rounds on social media has no truth to it.
India had confirmed the death of 20 soldiers in the clash, but the casualty numbers on the Chinese side still remains a mystery.
It’s disheartening to see that BJP leaders like Kapil Mishra circulating the unauthentic news on social media.
