CHINA’s STATE-RUN MEDIA REJECTED AS ‘FAKE’ OF PAKISTAN’s NEWS MEDIA REPORT OF ATTACK ON INDIA :

Pak news report of attack on India ‘fake’, says Chinese media:  China’s state-run media today rejected as ‘fake’ a Pakistani news report that claimed over 150 Indian soldiers were killed in Sikkim in a Chinese rocket attack. “Chinese media outlets have carried out a series of investigations, claiming that the fake news should not be taken seriously,” People’s Daily Online reported. Chinese mainstream media outlets have denounced Pakistani media’s ‘groundless’ report, said the online edition of the ruling Communist Party’s mouthpiece. A 24-hour Pakistani news channel yesterday claimed that at least 158 Indian soldiers have been killed as China fired rockets across the border on Indian border installations. India last night dismissed the report as ‘utterly baseless, malicious and mischievous’. According to the People’s Daily, the Chinese embassy in India has denounced the authenticity of the report. Some Pakistani media outlets claim that the fake news is based on unverified information from social media and the Internet. The state-run Global Times also published a report today, calling the Pakistani media report ‘groundless and fake’. Chinese authorities have not yet responded to the report.  China and India have been engaged in a standoff in the Doka La area in the Sikkim sector, where Indian troops stopped road construction by Chinese soldiers on June 16.  Rediff.com ; 18th.
