Indo-Japan Relations What does shirushi mean here? 日印関係

 

I wanted to say Indo-Japan Relations and My Google Translate gave me nichi shirushi kankei 日印関係 and when type in Hiragana and Kanji it correctly translates in Indo-Japan Relations. But there is no word for India as "indo" in that word. Is shirushi doing the job? What is the meaning of Shirushi???
