1.     Shwet Ashwa, the elite motorcycle display team of the Corps of Military Police, commenced a motor cycle expedition from Bengaluru to Drass on  2nd July 2018 as a tribute to the soldiers who laid down their lives during the Kargil war. After a gruelling ride through the Western Ghats and  encountering heavy rains at Mumbai and Jaipur, the expedition reached New Delhi on 13th Jul 2018 from where it will be flagged off for Drass on 16th  July 2018 by the Adjutant General Lt Gen Ashwani Kumar, AVSM, VSM.

2.     The expedition is being undertaken by five highly experienced riders of the Army’s Shwet Ashwa Motor Cycle Display team and will travel a  distance of more than 3250 km across eight states before they reach Drass on 24th July 2018.  At Drass, they will participate in the Vijay Diwas  celebrations to commemorate India’s Victory in the Kargil war and pay homage to the 527 brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives during this  operation. The riders on their 200cc TVS Apache RTR bikes have already covered approximately 2500 km and will now commence the most  treacherous phase of their ride while they pass through Manali, Sarchu, Leh and Drass.  They will face the most challenging terrain and weather and  both man and machine will be put to the ultimate test of endurance during this phase.
