Due to Covid-19-imposed restrictions, routine courtesy calls, social get togethers, exchange visits and other sports fixtures between the visitors and host naval personnel are being avoided, said the Indian Defence Ministry.

"Prottoy's" visit to Mumbai, which started yesterday, took place marking the celebration of 50 years of Bangladesh's independence.

"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," the ministry said in a statement.
