Where was the exercise held?

Teesta Field Firing Ranges. It is near Siliguri. The Siliguri is strategically important to India. This narrow 20 to 30-km-wide passage touches Bangladesh in the south and Bhutan in the north. If this passage is closed, the Indian mainland will lose its contact with the northeastern states. For this reason, the Siliguri corridor is important to India.
