In pics | India pays tribute to martyrs killed in violent clash against China in Galwan Valley

At least 20 jawans of the Indian Army were killed in action in a ‘violent face-off’ with Chinese troops on June 15.

Twenty Indian Army personnel including a colonel were killed in a fierce clash with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on June 15 night, the biggest military confrontation in over five decades that has significantly escalated the already volatile border standoff in the region. Indian security forces said neither side fired any shots, instead throwing rocks and trading blows. This happened during the de-escalation process in Ladakh's Galwan Valley.
