The visiting former Indian army officers, who had fought for Bangladesh's independence in 1971, and their wives visited the Liberation War Museum in Segun Bagicha Thursday.

Retired lieutenant general JFR Jacob, who is leading the team, signed the visitors' book, recalling the roles of the ordinary people of Bangladesh and army personnel in the Liberation War.
