GUWAHATI, NOV 4: Seven Rohingya’s were arrested under Ambassa police station from Bet Bagan area of Assam-Agartala National Highway in Tripura through Naka checking on Friday early morning.
They have been identified as- Md. Ekbal Hossen(60), Abdul Gafur(30), Azim ullah(22), Md Jahanjir Alam(20), Jannat Ara(21), Sadiya Begam(19), Dilbahar Begam (45).
“During naka checking, we have intercepted a Maruti car and during our questioning, we have arrested seven Rohingia’s for illegaly entering India. They have admitted that they illegally entered India through Shunamura border in Tripura from Bangladesh. Tomorrow, they will be produced before court,” said Mizanur Rahaman, officer-in-charge of Ambassa police station.
On August this year, two Rohingyas were arrested during a joint operation by Kolkata military intelligence department and police from Badarpur railway station in southern Assam’s Karimganj district.
The Rohingya refugee, displaced from Myanmar’s Rakhine region, is entering India through human trafficking corridors along West Bengal-Bangladesh border.
For decades, minority Rohingya Muslims have fled to neighboring Bangladesh and other countries, including India, to escape discrimination and violence from Buddhist majority Myanmar. Three years ago, rights groups estimated that 40,000 Rohingya refugees lived in different parts of India.
In 2017, in Jammu, the Bharatiya Janata Party and other Hindu group leaders launched a campaign demanding all Rohingya be expelled from the area. The BJP-led Indian government subsequently ordered every state to identify and detain all Rohingya Muslim refugees and deport them to Myanmar.
