Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Japan on Sept 27 to attend the state funeral of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the Indian government said on Thursday.

Abe, the longest-serving leader of modern Japan, was gunned down in July while campaigning for a parliamentary election.
