KOHIMA (PTI): India and Bangladesh held the field training exercise - 'SAMPRITI 2017' at the Counter Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School at Vairengte in Mizoram to strengthen interoperability and cooperation between the armies of the two countries.

The joint exercise, which started on November 6, was conducted in a progressive manner in which the participants initially familiarised themselves with each other's organisational structure and tactical drills.

Subsequently, the training advanced to various tactical exercises by the two armies, a press release issued by PIB Defence wing here said.

The final exercise was reviewed by Major General Md Moshfequr Rehman of Bangladesh Army and Major General M S Ghura of the Indian Army.

Describing the combined exercise as an 'unprecedented success', the release said that besides promoting understanding between the two armies, it helped in strengthening bilateral ties.

The combined exercise culminated with a validation exercise conducted on November 15 and 16.

The release said that a scenario of terrorists hiding in a village was painted for the validation exercise and it commenced with joint briefings by the company commanders of both the armies.

The troops cordoned off the village on the basis of the briefings and a daring raid was carried out in the jungle terrain. The exercise ended after the terrorists were neutralised.

A spectacular demonstration on room intervention drills was also conducted jointly by the Indian and Bangladesh army personnel, the release added.
