Indian Air Force (IAF) Mi-17 V5 helicopters showered petals on the venue as PM Modi hoisted the tricolour. They made an appearance at the Independence Day celebrations after a gap of 24 years. IAF’s Su-30s, Mi-8s and the Surya Kiran Aerobatic Team took part in the 1997 celebrations to mark the 50th Independence Day.

Javelin star Subedar Neeraj Chopra, who won India’s first gold medal in track and field at the Tokyo Olympics, was among the around 240 Olympians, support staff and SAI and sports federation officials were present on the Gyan Path in front of the Red Fort.

In Tokyo Olympics 2020, India recorded its best-ever medal haul by winning seven medals – one gold, two silver and four bronze.
