Ten Bangladeshi nationals deported in Assam

IANS  |  Guwahati 

The government on Thursday deported ten Bangladeshi nationals, including two minors and a woman, through a border checkpost along the India-border in Assam's Barak Valley.

The ten were arrested from the Barak valley at various points in time and lodged in Silchar Central jail.

The deportations came after the Indian government handed over a list of 50 Bangladeshi nationals to the authorities at a regular border meeting between the two countries.

"These people had sneaked into Indian side without any valid documents. They were sent in judicial custody after trials in local courts," said Cachar Deputy Commissioner S. Vishwanathan.

The DC said the government ascertained their identities and agreed to take them back.

"They were taken to the Kalibari Ghat border checkpost in Karimganj district on Thursday morning and handed over to Border Guards in the presence of officials," he said, adding that most of them hail from Sylhet district of Bangladesh.

More than 50 persons of origin are languishing in the Silchar jail and the government has taken up the issue with the government, the officer said.
