Indian and Chinese soldiers yelled and hurled stones at one another in the high Himalayas in Indian-controlled Kashmir, Indian officials said Wednesday after an altercation that escalated tensions between two nations already engaged in a lengthy border standoff elsewhere.

Meanwhile at least 52 trucks belonging to PLA parked on the road built by the Chinese army were spotted on the side of the lake.

On Wednesday, a Chinese official, as reported by the media, denied reports that about 15 People's Liberation Army personnel crossed the border and entered the Indian territory along the banks of Ladakh's Pangong Tso lake.

He said Chinese soldiers had twice tried to enter Indian territory but had been pushed back.

"Just that we are encouraging both parties to sit down and have direct dialogue", Heather Nauert said when asked about the United States' stand on the ongoing standoff between India and China in the Doklam plateau next to Sikkim.

Three men shot to death at Kenosha County auto racing event
The police said while friends of the victims were in shock after the event, they had no idea what would have led to the incident. Three people are dead following a shooting at the Great Lakes Dragaway Sunday, Kenosha County Sheriff's officials said.

The army was apparently countering reports of a fresh clash breaking out with Chinese troops in the Doklam Plateau, where a almost two-month-long stand-off over a trilateral border terroritorial ownership is still on. Dok La is an Indian name for the region where Bhutan called it as Doklam while China claims it as part of Donglang region.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said she did not know the details of the most recent incident.

The skirmish in Ladakh comes at a time when India and China are locked in a face-off in the Doklam area of the Sikkim sector. The Chinese side is committed to peace and tranquillity of the China-India border. "We urge the Indian side abide by the LAC and relevant conventions between the two sides", she added.

China has repeatedly asked India to unilaterally withdraw from the Doklam area, or else face the prospect of a military-related escalation.
