During his visit, ACM Chaudhari paid homage to the war heroes of the Bangladesh armed forces who made supreme sacrifices during the Liberation War of 1971. He laid a wreath at the Shikha Anirban memorial in Dhaka, honouring their courage, dedication, and sacrifice.

Accompanied by a three-member delegation, ACM Chaudhari is scheduled to hold courtesy calls with the Bangladesh prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, as well as the chiefs of all three services of the Bangladesh armed forces. He will also engage with other senior officers from the Bangladesh military. Additionally, he plans to visit major Bangladesh Air Force airbases during his stay.
