"The Chinese side has sought a flag meeting in the area with the Indians to discuss matter", the source said.

Personnel from both sides received minor injuries and the situation was brought under control after the customary banner drill under which both sides hold banners before stepping back to their respective positions, PTI reported.

Indian troops involved in the incident said the Chinese patrol teams, consisting of around 15 personnel, started throwing stones first.

There is now no official comment on the incident from either New Delhi or Beijing.

The Pangong lake area lies over 4,000 metres high on the Tibetan plateau. Dok La is an Indian name for the region where Bhutan called it as Doklam while China claims it as part of Donglang region.

A scuffle took place on Tuesday when troops of China's PLA tried to cross the Line of Actual Control near Pangong Lake in Ladakh. "We urge the Indian side to abide by the LAC and relevant conventions", she added.

Earlier, the Chinese patrols used to come frequently from the northern and southern banks of this lake, a 45-km stretch of which is on the Indian side while 90 km is on the Chinese side.

Earlier, the U.S. had said that it was closely following the border standoff. After Chinese troopers found their path blocked by Indian soldiers who formed a human chain, they began hurling stones, prompting a swift retaliation by Indian border guards.

It is not the first time that this particular region has been grasped by tension. The official said the event was marked more informally, with both sides' troops exchanging candies at several places, including the Doklam area, where the stand-off has lasted nearly two months.
