Govt denies firing on Indian jawans by Chinese troops

September 15, 2009 11:52 IST
The government on Tuesday termed as "incorrect" a media report which said that two Indo-Tibetan Border Police jawans were injured in firing by Chinese troops in Sikkim recently.

"A media report about two ITBP jawans having been injured due to firing from across the Line of Actual Control has come to notice. The report is factually incorrect," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vishnu Prakash said in a statement in New Delhi.

The report had claimed that the ITBP jawans were injured when Chinese troops had fired at them in Kerang in northern Sikkim about a fortnight ago.
