42 illegal Bangladeshi occupants deported from Assam, India


With the help of the BSF, the Assam Police on Monday deported 42 Bangladeshi nationals, including women and children, who had entered India illegally, police said.

Karimganj district Superintendent of Police Mayank Kumar said that all the 42 were deported through Sutarkandi (India)-Jokiganj (in Bangladesh’s Sylhet district) border crossing following Covid-19 protocols and other formalities.

“All the 42 people were arrested separately in different places of Assam after they illegally entered into India in search of jobs. After completing their jail terms, these people were handed over to the Bangladesh authority on Monday afternoon,” Kumar told the media.

Another police official said that of the 42 people, 25 people were arrested at the Guwahati railway station 25 months ago after they returned to Assam from Bengaluru.

“These people entered Assam, with the help of middlemen, and then went to Bengaluru to do various jobs there,” the police official said. They were in Pandu, Cachar, Karimganj, South Salmara, Guwahati, Sivsagar, Sonitpur, Karbi Anglong and Dima Hasao jails.

Assam has a 263-km-long border with Bangladesh and most patches are unfenced.
