ISPR rejects report on Indian army chief visiting Dhaka
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) has trashed a Times of India report that claimed Indian Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat would visit Dhaka again at the end of April. “It is a baseless report,” ISPR Director Lt Col Rashidul Hasan told Dhaka Tribune on Saturday. Thursday's ToI report, titled 'Army chief to visit Bangladesh next week', quoted unnamed sources as saying that Rawat would “discuss the different steps being taken to build military-to-military ties during his visit to Bangladesh from April 27 to 30.” Bangladesh and India signed a memorandum of understanding on defence cooperation during Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's recent Delhi visit. India also offered a $500 million line of credit in support of Bangladesh’s defence-related procurement. Gen Rawat visited Dhaka from Mar 31 to April 2. The ToI report claimed his second visit would be aimed at upgrading the bilateral defence relationship. Several Bangladeshi news outlets picked up the news from ToI. The ToI story was still available on its site on Saturday afternoon. ISPR Director Rashidul said: “No such programme (the Indian Army chief's visit) has been planned.”
