China blamed India for the incidents, calling the actions by Indian border troops "infringing and provocative".

The disputed and undemarcated 3,500-kilometres (2,175-mile) border between India and China, referred to as the Line of Actual Control, stretches from the Ladakh region in the north to the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh.

He further said the Indian army illegally crossed the LAC and entered the south bank of Pangong Lake and the Shenpao mountain area.

Col. Aman Anand, an Indian army spokesman, said China continues "provocative activities to escalate" tensions and called the Chinese military statement an attempt to mislead domestic and worldwide audiences. On Monday, Chinese Army PLA troops attempted to close-in on one of the Indian forward positions and undertook "provocative activities to escalate" according to Indian Army statement. On the Indian side, the area is known as Chushul where the two countries' local military commanders have held several rounds of talks to defuse the tense standoff.

Beijing says it took "countermeasures" after Indian troops fired aerial shots during a confrontation with Chinese personnel on the border of disputed Kashmir.

.

Earlier on Saturday, a senior Arunachal Pradesh police officer had said that the cops had launched a probe after reports stated that five people, who had gone hunting in a forest in Upper Subansiri district on the Sino-India border, were allegedly kidnapped by the Chinese military.

"Despite the grave provocation, our troops exercised great restraint and behaved in a mature and responsible manner".

After shots were fired, Chinese forces took "necessary measures to stabilize and control the situation", the command said in a statement citing spokesman Zhang Shuili. In turn, China accused Indian troops of crossing established lines of control.

He said the Islamabad Wildlife Management Board had invited Four Paws to safely transfer the remaining animals out of the zoo. What makes them unique is that aside from being the largest animal on Earth, they are also unique-looking animals.

He alleged that India's actions have violated agreements between India and China. India said it was the Chinese patrol that discharged firearms.

"China's position on the eastern sector of the China-India boundary, or the southern part of China's Tibet region, is consistent and clear".

Tensions have been mounting since a fight at the Ladakh border in June left 20 Indian soldiers dead.

Relations between the nuclear-armed Asian giants have hit a multi-decade low since clashes at their western Himalayan border in June that killed 20 Indian soldiers. China also suffered casualties but never confirmed any figure.

However, the recent developments on the borders suggest both sides are flexing their muscles putting the agreements aside.

On Monday, Chinese and Indian soldiers were within shooting distance in key hills occupied by India on the south bank of Pangong Lake, between Rechin La-Rezangla-Mukhpari and Magar Hill in South Pangong.

In 1993, New Delhi and Beijing agreed that neither side "shall use or threaten to use force against the other by any means".

The Indian Army has begun efforts to secure the release of five villagers from Arunachal Pradesh who were reportedly abducted by the Peoples' Liberation Army of China from Sera-7 area below the McMahon Line in Upper Subansiri in Arunachal Pradesh.
