China Foreign Ministry, asked about Indian Army reporting casualties in clash with China,  calls on India to not take unilateral actions or stir up trouble, says ANI quoting Reuters. 

An Indian Army officer and two soldiers were killed in Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on Monday night during a violent face off with the Chinese troops, the Army said. They said senior military officials of the two sides are holding a meeting in Galwan Valley to defuse tension. 

"During the de-escalation process underway in the Galwan Valley, a violent face-off took place on Monday night with casualties. The loss of lives on the Indian side includes an officer and two soldiers," the Army said in a brief statement. 

A large number of Indian and Chinese troops were engaged in an eyeball-to-eyeball situation in Galwan Valley for the last five weeks. The incident comes days after Indian Army Chief Gen MM Naravane said both sides have begun disengaging from Galwan Valley.

Journalist Shiv Aroor tweets: Casualties on both sides (unclear what nature/numbers on Chinese side). No bullets fired, clash was with stones and clubs. Several injured. 

Journalist Manu Pubby tweets: These are the the first killings on the India China border since 1975, when four Assam Rifles troopers were shot dead. No firing took place, so this means that our soldiers were beaten to death by the Chinese on Indian territory.
