According to the information, in Maldives, India operated and maintained radars, helicopters, and aircraft as per agreement in the island nation.

The move came up after the Maldives President asked India in January this year to withdraw military troops stationed in Maldives, after a diplomatic tussle erupted following a war of words by a few Maldives ministers against India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi
