15 Rohingyas held in Assam’s Karimganj for entering India illegally.

Fifteen Rohingya immigrants, including six minors and three women, have been held by Railway Police Force (RPF) in Assam’s Karimganj district.

According to reports, the RPF personnel had intercepted 15 people who were sitting on platform no. 1 at Badarpur railway station after observing some suspicious activities. They were about to board the Silchar-Agartala passenger train on Saturday.

After interrogation, the RPF officials found that all 15 people were Rohingya immigrants who had entered India illegally without valid documents. They were staying at Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh and reached Siliguri a few days back and then travelled to Badarpur from Siliguri by a passenger train.

“Among the 15 Rohingyas, there are six minors and nine adults, including three women. They came from Alipur and their next destination was Agartala. We found them seated on the platform while they were about to board the Silchar-Agartala passenger train,” an RPF official said.

The officials also recovered three identity cards issued by the United Nations High Commissioner for refugees, nine mobile phone handsets and around Rs 50,000 cash in possession of them.

Later, the arrested Rohingyas were handed over to the Government Railway Police (GRP).
