    US requests india for no-fly zone over Rajpath on Republic day, India rejects

    President-Barack-ObamaNew Delhi.

    The Indian government on Sunday rejected the US request for a no-fly zone over Rajpath for the Republic Day. The suggestion came from Barack Obama’s security teams that a 5-km “no-fly zone” be imposed in central Delhi for the Republic Day parade on January 26 at which the US President will be the chief guest.

    India denied the request citing the fact that it is a tradition on Republic Day to have a fly past. Rajpath otherwise has a no fly zone for commercial flights.
    The advance team of US secret service had also sought the closure of Central Delhi and Delhi-Agra Highway for three days during President Barack Obama’s visit to India. The President will be in India from January 25-2
