After multiple rounds of talks at the Major General level, China released 10 of the Indian soldiers they had captured from the Galwan valley.
On June 18, the media reported that ten Indian soldiers, including two Majors and two Captains, were released from the Chinese custody after successful rounds of talks at the Major General level. The media refrained from reporting the incident as they had decided not to report the incident until the soldiers safely returned from PLA's detention.
A detailed medical examination was carried out on the soldiers that were returned by the PLA, and it was reported that none of them had sustained major injuries, and there were no visual signs of mistreatment. Indian soldiers were last captured by the PLA in 1962 when the Chinese took control of the Aksai Chin region of Ladakh by force.
