Sikkim: Indian Army has rescued three Chinese nationals who lost their way in plateau areas of North Sikkim at an altitude of 17,500 feet on September 3.

Realising danger to the lives of the Chinese citizens which included two men and one woman in sub zero temperatures, the soldiers of Indian Army immediately reached out and provided medical assistance including oxygen, food and warm clothes to protect them from the vagaries of extreme altitude and harsh climatic conditions, an Indian Army spokesperson said.

The Indian troops also gave them appropriate guidance to reach their destination after which they moved back.

The Chinese citizens expressed their gratitude to India and the Indian Army for their prompt assistance.

On the other hand, Indian and Chinese troops have been engaged into border standoff along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh since early May.
