Kathmandu: Five Indians apart from amputee climber Arunima Sinha on Tuesday conquered Mount Everest.

Loveraj (39) from Uttarkhand, an assistant commandant with the Border Security Force, is the first Indian to scale the world`s highest peak five times in a row. He had reached the summit in June last year.
