He will have meetings with the leadership and will be hosted for a state banquet at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The President is scheduled to hold bilateral discussions with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the 16th across a spectrum of issues.

Six Sri Lankan fishermen and 27 fishing boats were released from Indian custody in conjunction with President Maithripala Sirisena’s visit to India.

87 Indian fishing boats which were seized by the local authority were also released yesterday.
