JAIPUR (PTI): Nearly 20,000 troops of Indian Army along with tanks, artillery guns and advanced surveillance sensors participated in a month-long military exercise 'Thar Shakti' in Rajasthan.

In the exercise which culminated on Monday, Army's Chetak Corps carried out operational manoeuvres in the deserts of the state.

General Officer Commanding of the Chetak Corps Lt Gen Ashwani Kumar along with senior officers reviewed the manoeuvres during the culminating phase of the exercise.
