A video of the recent skirmish between Indian and Chinese forces at Ladakh has surfaced.

On India's Independence Day, Indian border guards foiled an attempt by Chinese soldiers to enter Indian territory in Ladakh.

Indian and Chinese soldiers were involved in an altercation at Pangong Tso lake.

The video shows Chinese soldiers throwing stones and bashing at Indo-Tibetan border personnel (ITBP) with iron rods. The Indian soldiers - in Khakhi - hit back. 

Two-thirds of the Pangong Lake is controlled by China while one-third of it is controlled by India, which further complicates the situation.

The altercation at Ladakh comes at a time when India and China are locked in a face-off in the Doka la area of the Sikkim sector.
