The Chinese People's Liberation Army inflicted extreme violence on Indian Army soldiers and also went to the extent of disfiguring their faces beyond recognition, Economic Times has reported.

The report states that extreme injury marks were seen on some of the Indian Army soldiers who were martyred during the Galwan attack. The Chinese used nail studded rods to attack the Indian troops, pictures of which have been shared by analysts.

The brutality by the Chinese included slitting necks and disfiguring faces of Indian soldiers beyond recognition.

"Around 17 soldiers had extreme violence marks on their bodies. The officers present in the hospital and Army base were directed to not click pictures of the bodies...the three may have died of drowning. However, others had punctures all over their bodies. Faces of at least three soldiers were unrecognisable and three others had slit marks on their neck", an official was quoted as saying.

It was reported yesterday (18 June) that China had mutilated the bodies of some of Indian Army soldiers which led to intense anger on the Indian side.

China carried out a premeditated and unprovoked attack on the Indian troops in Galwan Valley with reports indicating that their troops outnumbered Indians in a 1:5 ratio. Despite the odds, Indian Army fought back and inflicted over 40 casualties on the Chinese side.
