India took less than half an hour to wrap up victory on the fourth day of the first Test against Bangladesh after claiming the last two wickets needed.

Left-arm paceman Irfan Pathan removed Tapash Baisya for 29 to finish with figures of 6-51, and 11-96 overall.

Zaheer Khan claimed the final wicket when he had the diligent Manjural Islam Rana caught behind for 69.

The home side, 170-8 overnight, subsided for 202 to slump to defeat by an innings and 140 runs.

Bangladesh were left with a daunting task after Sachin Tendulkar's record unbeaten 248 helped India to a total of 526, a lead of 342.

Only Nafis Iqbal (54) and Islam Rana offered any real resistance as the hosts were routed in double-quick time.

In their 33 Tests since 2000, Bangladesh have now accumulated 30 defeats, with only three draws to their credit.

The second and final Test of the series starts in Chittagong on Friday.

Bangladesh: Habibul Bashar (capt), Nafis Iqbal, Javed Omar, Mohammad Ashraful, Rajin Saleh, Khaled Mashud (wkt), Mushfiqur Rahman, Mohammad Rafique, Tapash Baisya, Mashrafe Mortaza, Manjurul Islam Rana.

India: S Ganguly (capt), V Sehwag, G Gambhir, S Tendulkar, R Dravid, M Kaif, D Karthik (wkt), I Pathan, A Kumble, Harbhajan Singh, Z Khan.
