Bangladesh Navy ship Prottoy visits Mumbai

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 16 Feb 2021, 05:27 pm

Mumbai: Bangladesh Navy Ship (BNS) Prottoy is on a two-day visit to Mumbai from Feb 14 to 15.

The ship commanded by Captain Ahamed Amin Abdullah with a crew of 137 personnel is docked at Mumbai Port Trust, read a government statement.

Due to COVID-19 imposed restrictions, routine courtesy call-ons, social get togethers, exchange visits and other sports fixtures between the visitors and host naval personnel are being avoided.

This visit of BNS Prottoy to Mumbai is significant in the backdrop that the two countries celebrated 50 years of Bangladesh independence recently.

To commemorate the occasion, for the first time, a marching contingent and military band from Bangladesh participated in India’s Republic Day Parade.

Since the formation of Bangladesh, both India and Bangladesh have come a long way in nurturing strategic and defence relationships and these bonds are gradually growing in mutual trust and confidence.
