The Congress's Rahul Gandhi tweeted his condolences for the army officer and the men who died in Ladakh's Galwan Valley last night following what the army called a "violent face-off" in which both sides sustained casualty.

'Words cannot describe the pain I feel for the officers and men who sacrificed their lives for our country. My condolences to all their loved ones. We stand with you in this difficult time," Gandhi's tweet read.

Colonel B Santosh, who belonged to the 16 Bihar Regiment, and two soldiers -- Havildar Palani and Sepoy Ojha -- died last night when a clash broke out as the Chinese troops were getting ready to move away from a location as per an agreement between the two sides, sources said.

Gandhi's party, the Congress, has demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi share the ground situation at Ladakh with the nation, including how much of Indian territory is under Chinese control.
