Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the Independence Day celebrations from Red Fort in New Delhi today. He will hoist the national flag and is delivering the customary address to the nation from the ramparts of Red Fort.

Security has been tightened in the national capital for the 75th Independence Day celebrations on Sunday.
