Indian Army has rejected as “baseless & fake” a report in the British daily newspaper ‘The Times’, which had quoted a Chinese professor to claim that the Chinese army had used “microwave weapons” to drive Indian soldiers away from their positions in eastern Ladakh. “The news is FAKE,” the Indian Army said in a tweet. Beijing-datelined report in ‘The Times’, titled “China turns Ladakh battleground with India into a microwave oven”, which was published on November 17 on the newspaper’s website, quoted Jin Canrong, a professor of international relations at Beijing’s Renmin University. Jin claimed that China had used a “microwave weapon” in late August to retake land that had been occupied by the Indian Army on the southern bank of the Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh. “Microwave weapons” are supposed to be a type of direct energy weapons, which aim highly focused energy in the form of sonic, laser, or microwaves, at a target.
