The Press Information Bureau busted a fake news story carried by a prominent news publication that claimed that the Chinese PLA had transgressed into Indian territory and occupied positions in Finger 1 and Finger 2 of the north bank of Pangong Tso. The ADG PI of the Indian Army has refuted the publication’s claim of Chinese transgression. The publication, in its story, had quoted BJP MP Tupstan Chhewang to attribute the claims of China’s PLA occupying positions in Finger 1 and Finger 2.
