SEOUL, July 11 (Yonhap) -- Samsung heir Lee Jae-yong returned home on Wednesday after a four-day visit to India, where he held a meeting with President Moon Jae-in, an industry source said.

Moon and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended an opening ceremony for Samsung Electronics' smartphone plant in India earlier this week.

On the sidelines of the ceremony, Moon held his first face-to-face meeting with Lee, vice chairman of Samsung Electronics, since he took office last year.

The ceremony was also Lee's first public activity since February, when he was released from prison.

Lee had been locked up for nearly a year as a result of a bribery scandal that led to the ousting of Moon's predecessor, Park Geun-hye.
