The photograph of a 19-year-old Chinese soldier’s gravestone, circulating on the China’s social media site Weibo, could be evidence of Chinese casualties in the Galwan Valley clash with India on the intervening night of June 14 and 15.
Indian Army already had claimed that there had been losses on the Chinese side as well in the Galwan clash. It is likely that such leaks are because of discontent within PLA
The inscription on the gravestone, in Mandarin, says, “Tomb of martyr Chen Xiangrong, soldier of the Unit 69316 of the Southern Xinjiang Military District of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army 13th Regiment. Born in December 2001, from Pingnan county, Fujian province China. Sacrificed in the fight against India’s border defence in June 2020.”
