NEW DELHI: India on Tuesday described as “incorrect’ a news report that two jawans of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police were injured in firing from across the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China.
“A media report about two ITBP jawans having been injured due to firing from across the LAC has come to notice. The report is factually incorrect,” External Affairs Ministry spokesman Vishnu Prakash said.
A Kolkata/Guwahati datelined report in The Times of India on Tuesday said the incident occurred a fortnight ago in Kerang in northern Sikkim.
Quoting a highly-placed intelligence source, whom it did not identify stating the person was not authorised to brief the media, the report said ITBP officials in Delhi declined to confirm the incident.
Meanwhile, the China Study Group comprising the National Security Adviser and the Secretaries in the Ministries of External Affairs, Defence and Home will meet here on Thursday, a meeting that official sources said was “routine.”
