While official confirmation from the Indian Army is awaited, top sources have confirmed to PTI that at least 10 soldiers died in the clash with China in Galwan Valley on Monday night.

The ministry of external affairs has said that both China and India suffered causalities as Beijing tried to unilaterally change status quo and "departed from the consensus to respect the Line of Actual Control in the Galwan Valley".

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar earlier met Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the Indian Army's standoff with Chinese troops in Ladakh's Galwan Valley saw violent escalation. 

Earlier, Chief of Defence Staff Bipin Rawat and Chief of Army Staff General MM Naravane met defence minister Rajnath Singh.
