Fact check: Claim of Chinese troops transgressing further into Indian territory is fake

New Delhi (NVI): Indian Army today refuted a media report which claimed that Chinese troops have further transgressed into the Indian territory at Pangng Tso (lake) in eastern Ladakh.

The Fact Check Unit of the Press Information Bureau (PIB) busted the fake news story carried by a prominent publication.

The publication, in its story, had quoted BJP MP Tupstan Chhewang to attribute the claims of China’s PLA occupying positions in Finger 1 and Finger 2.

Debunking the claims, Press Information Bureau (PIB) in a tweet wrote, “@the_hindu citing a claim, has published that Chinese troops have further transgressed into Indian territory and occupied positions in Finger 2 and 3 of the north bank of #PangongTso Lake.

#PIBFactCheck: It is a #Fake news. @adgpi has refuted this statement.”
