Fact Check: Did China use microwave weapons against India in Ladakh?

Team Udayavani, Nov 18, 2020, 3:01 PM IST

A leading UK daily earlier reported that China’s People’s Liberation Army used microwave weapon on Indian troops deployed at two strategic hilltops in eastern Ladakh.

According to Washington Examiner, the Beijing-based professor claimed that Chinese forces used the weapons in order to fight while honouring a decades-old agreement that the two nuclear-armed neighbours would not use firearms in the border disputes.

The use of weapon turned the hilltops “into a microwave oven”, forcing Indian soldiers to retreat and allowing the positions to be retaken by the Chinese without an exchange of conventional fire

The professor claimed that the attack took place on August 29, but the Indian official said that never happened.

However, the Indian Army dismissed reports on the employment of microwave weapon by China in eastern Ladakh, calling it ‘fake’ news

Also, India’s Press Information Bureau refuted the report. “Some international news portals have published misleading headlines and reported baseless claims related to India-China border stand-off in Ladakh,” the Press Information Bureau tweeted.

Microwave weapons can shoot targets, which causes pain nerve under the skin to ache. This system was designed to render enemies defenseless.
