The army chief, General Moeen U Ahmed, leaves for New Delhi said on a weeklong visit to India.

A source said the army chief would call on Indian leaders, including external affairs minister Pranab Mukherjee and defense minister AK Anthony, during his stay in the Indian capital on February 24-25.

Besides, General Moeen will meet the chiefs of three services of the neighbouring country.

He will be given six horses as gift from India in a gesture of goodwill. From Delhi, the army chief will go on a visit to the Indian Military Academy in Deradun.

He will also visit Ajmer Sharif and Goa. On his way back home, he will meet West Bengal chief minister Buddhadev Bhattacharya in Kolkata.

'This is a routine visit. Earlier, the Indian army chief visited Bangladesh,' said the source.

He is expected to return home on March 1. General Moeen was scheduled to go to India last year but had to postpone the trip because of back-to-back floods in the last fall.
