Prime Minister Narendra Modi reaches Leh

Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Leh early morning on July 3 to review security situation and meet soldiers serving at the LAC.

This comes amid India's growing tensions with China and Chinese troops movement at the LAC in the past few months that led to a clash between the two countries' armies leading to fatalities on both sides.

India and China have been at loggerheads since China started troop movement around the Galwan valley in the Eastern Ladakh region and later making unsubstantiated claims over parts of the Galwan valley.

Mounting tensions led to a nasty scuffle between armies of India and China on June 16 that took lives of as many as 20 Indian soldiers and leaving 76 others injured.

The Chinese army didn't clarify on the number of deaths on their side but reports have said that over 35 Chinese soldiers also died in the scuffle.
