The Central Information Commission (CIC) has ruled that details of the Chinese soldiers' injuries sustained during the battle with Indian forces in Ladakh's Galwan Valley two years ago cannot be made public.

CIC, the highest appeals court under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, recently rejected a request for "the casualties to the Chinese forces" in an order.

The applicant had also requested details regarding the compensation given to the families as ex-gratia and for recovery.
