AGARTALA, July 26 (TIWN): Along with whole India, Tripura is observing 20th Kargil Vijay Diwas on Friday to commemorate the victory of Indian armed forces over Pakistan in the mountains of Kargil on Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

 The Kargil war, which led to 527 deaths on Indian soldiers, lasted for over two months and ended on July 26, 1999. Indian Army, with the help of the Indian Air Force (IAF), wrested back the Kargil region, in Ladakh sector, from the Pakistan army.
