The Indian team arrived in Narail by a helicopter yesterday and they were greeted by Md Zohirul Haque, deputy commissioner of Narail, with a floral reception, said sources.
Among other places, the Indian team also visited Wellington field, Narail Govt Boys School field and the house of Shuvra Mukherjee's maternal uncle in Chasra village of the sadar upazila.
Sandeep Chakraborty, the Indian deputy high commissioner in Dhaka, Bishwajeet Dey, press officer, and Somnath Ghosh, Indian assistant high commissioner in Chittagong, were part of the 12-member Indian team.
