In one of the many firsts this year, a women contingent of the Border Security Force on Friday performed motorcycle stunts during the Republic Day parade, drawing one of the loudest cheers from the audience as well as dignitaries like President Ram Nath Kovind and ASEAN leaders.
Another proud moment is for the citizens of Belagavi as Shruti Avarolli-Patil a native of Belagavi was part of the 113 women team which performed the stunts.
Over a 100 women riding as many as 26 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycles enthralled the spectators many of whom — men, women and children — were on their feet and clapped throughout the display.
