A publication from Taiwan recently claimed that Chinese Communists’ People’s Liberation Army had kidnapped 20 Indian soldiers as tensions continue to mount between India and China.
Apple Daily News, Taiwan, quoting a random social media user, said that according to local sources, at least 20 Indian soldiers in the remote village of Nacho in Upper Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh were kidnapped by the Chinese PLA soldiers.
The Taiwanese report added – An Indian netizen posted on Twitter today that, according to local sources, at least 20 Indian soldiers in the remote village of Nacho in Upper Subansiri County of Arunachal Pradesh were kidnapped by the Chinese Communists.
Global Times, the Chinese state-media outlet has categorically rejected the fabricated allegations that claimed that 20 Indian soldiers were kidnapped by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) near the LAC.
Global Times wrote – Some posts on Twitter on Sunday claimed that the Chinese army kidnapped 20 Indian soldiers on the border areas between the two sides in the south of China’s Tibet Autonomous Region. But sources close to the matter told the Global Times that this is fake news. Analysts said that posts by netizens are unreliable, and noted that no such incidents have occurred in the boundary areas between China and India in recent years.
The report warned that the fake news, released at a critical time during the border tensions between the two countries, could endanger the relations and bring about uncertainty to the relationship between the Chinese and Indian armies as both nations are set to hold another round of Corps Commander talks.
