India denies reports of China using ‘microwave’ weapons on Indian soldiers

According to British daily ‘The Times’, China’s military has used microwave weapons to force Indian troops to retreat during a border stand-off in the Himalayas.

The microwave attack as reported by The Times is said to have taken place on August 29.


Indian government on Tuesday, denied reports that were claimed by The Times, that the Chinese military had used microwave weapons against Indian soldiers during the border standoff in eastern Ladakh, forcing them to retreat.

Later on, Tuesday, “Some international news portals have published misleading headlines and reported baseless claims related to India-China border stand-off in Ladakh,” the Press Information Bureau said in a tweet.
ADGPI, Additional Directorate General of Public Information, said, “This claim is fake”, has clarified that no such incident has taken place. “Beware of such misinformation.”

India and China are on border stand-off, started from 5th May to the present day.
On 14 June 2020, Indo-China tensions raised significantly high when Chinese soldiers attacked Indian soldiers in a hand to hand combat killing 20 Indian soldiers and unknown Chinese soldiers (as per the US reports Chinese casualties was 45 in total while India was claiming 30 Chinese casualties which involve the death of a Chinese officer while China never revealed the numbers.)

Since the deadly clash India and China had a total of 8 rounds of high-level military talks. And finally, in the 8th round India and China had agreed to the disengagement process.
