General Naravane, who served in the army’s Sikh Light (Sikhlai) Infantry in 1980, was considered knowledgeable in China affairs. Within just five months of taking over as Army Chief, the Indian Army had a dispute with the PLA-Army of China on the LAC adjoining Eastern Ladakh during the Corona epidemic. This dispute increased so much that fighting started between the armies of both the countries in Galvan Valley of Eastern Ladakh. There was no bullet from both the sides, but there was a fierce battle of sticks and medieval weapons. In this battle, 20 soldiers including Colonel Santosh Babu of the Indian Army were martyred and about 100 soldiers were injured. The Chinese army also suffered heavy losses in the battle. However, the Chinese army never openly told its loss. Chinese state media put the number of Chinese soldiers killed at five.
