The Indian Army rescued three Chinese citizens in North Sikkim. The Army provided help to two men and one woman realising the danger to their lives in sub-zero temperatures.

The incident happened this week. Chinese citizens were found at an altitude of 17500 feet in the border area of North Sikkim. Indian troops provided food, warm clothes and medical assistance including oxygen to the citizens. One soldier was seen carrying an oxygen cylinder to help the people, while other security personnel were seen carrying food and helping to fix a car. The Indian troops also guided them the way to reach to their destination.


“Realising the danger to the lives of the Chinese citizens — two men and one woman — in sub-zero temperatures, the soldiers 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,” the Army said in a statement.


The Chinese citizens expressed their gratitude towards India and the Indian Army for their prompt assistance.


This incident happened after the Government mentioned last Saturday that Chinese troops are engaged in “proactive-actions” at the south bank of Pangong Lake in Eastern Ladakh. Chinese citizens were seen in the Eastern Ladakh. The kind gesture was provided by the Indian troops even after the Chinese soldiers try to kill 20 Indian soldiers in Galwan valley in June.
