"The entire fraternity of courageous IPS officers, especially those above 40", he wrote on his twitter handle.

The video was in response to the #HumFitTohIndiaFit ("India's fit if we are fit") challenge posed to him on May 23 by cricketer Virat Kohli. "I also practice breathing exercises (sic)".

"Dear Narendra Modiji, I am honoured and thank you very much for the concern about my health".

The prime minister's one-and-a-half minute video comes almost a month after he accepted the fitness challenge thrown by Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli.

On Twitter, Modi said he also walks "on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash".

The Prime Minister said, "Here are moments from my morning exercises".
