The 1971 India-Pakistan war hero, Captain M.N. Samant of the Indian Navy, who helped set up the foundation of the Bangladesh Navy, passed away here on Wednesday following cardiac arrest, an official said.
He breathed his last at the Bharatiya Arogya Nidhi Hospital in Juhu.
After the 1971 war, which saw East Pakistan’s birth as a new country Bangladesh, Capt. Samant helped the fledgling Bangladesh Navy to expand.
