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.
