India celebrated the 72nd Republic Day with the union and chief ministers greeting the citizens of the country. The national flag was unfurled at Rajpath in presence of President Ram Nath Kovind, PM Modi and other dignitaries on the occasion.

Rafale fighter jets, which were inducted into the Indian Air Force (IAF) last year, featured in the Republic Day parade and culminated the flypast by carrying out the 'Vertical Charlie' formation.
