Indian Army has returned a Chinese soldier who was apprehended on the 8th of this month. Army sources said he was handed back to China at Chushul-Moldo this morning.
 
The Chinese soldier was apprehended on the Indian side of the LAC, Ladakh, in the area South of Pangong Tso lake. The soldier had transgressed across the LAC and was taken into custody by Indian troops deployed in this area.
 
"The PLA soldier had transgressed across the LAC and was taken into custody by Indian troops deployed in this area. Troops from either side are deployed along the LAC since friction erupted last year due to unprecedented mobilisation and forward concentration by Chinese troops," the Army said in a statement on Saturday.
