Agra, Aug 19: Former Indian test cricket captain M.S. Dhoni, a honorary Lt. Col. in the Indian Army, on Wednesday parajumped from an AN-32 aircraft from a height of 1,250 feet.

Jourlists were not permitted to interact with him. But an official at the Malpura drop zone said the jump was successful.

A huge crowd from neighbouring villages had gathered for a glimpse of the star.

Dhoni spent a fortnight training at the Para Training School (PTS) of the 50th Independent parabrigade, known for its operations in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.

Besides Dhoni, a dozen paratroopers also jumped on Wednesday. Dhoni passed the fil ground test on Tuesday before he was allowed to jump from the plane on Wednesday.
