India-China standoff updates: Army IAF to maintain very high-level of alertness along LAC

By oneindia staff

New Delhi, Aug 07: A Defence Ministry document that contained an admission that China had "transgressed" into Indian territory in eastern Ladakh disappeared from the Ministry's website on Thursday afternoon. The document, which listed "major activities of Department of Defence" for June, warned of a "prolonged" standoff - which is already in its fourth month - between Indian and Chinese soldiers on the Line of Actual Control (LAC).


Based on what the document said, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of "lying" - and, after the document was no longer available, mocked the government for "removing documents from websites".
