-Tension increased after Galwan clash 3 years ago

However, China continued to hide it. Such a situation had arisen between the two countries at Galvan Valley after 40 years. The reason behind the clash at Galwan was that Indian soldiers had decided to build a temporary bridge at one end of the Galwan River.
