New Delhi, July 01 (KMS): Amid the ongoing border tension between China and India following the June 15 humiliation for India, the Indian newspapers and websites have been blocked in China possibly because of unfounded propaganda.

Though Chinese newspapers and websites continue to be accessible in India, people in China can only access the Indian media websites with Virtual Private Network server. VPNs mask internet protocol address so a user’s online actions are virtually untraceable. But China has created such a technologically advanced firewall that it blocks even the VPNs.

The recent action comes amid the ongoing tension between India and China after the killing of at least 20 Indian soldiers and injuries to many during a violent standoff on June 15 in Galwan Valley area in eastern Ladakh. China has refuted that any of its soldier had suffered injuries during the clash. »
