Assam government all set to deport 23 more Rohingyas back to Myanmar

After the deporting 7 Rohingyas back to Myanmar earlier this month, the government has decided to deport 23 more Rohingyas, who have been staying at various detention camps in Assam after they were caught staying illegally in the state, claim reports.

According to reports, the to-be deported Rohingyas are being kept at detention camps in Silchar, Goalpara and Tezpur of Assam, and they have given their consent to the government for deportation back to Myanmar.

The reports say that the Ministry of Home Affairs has initiated official protocol with Myanmar government and has received assurance of safety and well being of the deportees. Myanmarese authorities have also completed the verification of their home addresses. However, the dates of deportation have not been decided yet. Government sources indicate that the deportation will take place in a phased manner.

The government has also asked north-east border security forces, to be more vigilant of refugees coming from Myanmar. The government has also alerted Railway ministry to keep an eye, on Rohingyas travelling across the country after a huge number of Rohingyas were reported to be travelling from northeast to South India through long-distance trains, last month.

Last month, a three-judge bench of Supreme Court had rejected a petition seeking to stall the deportation of 7 Rohingyas and after that, the 7 persons were handed over to Myanmar authorities at Moreh border post in Manipur.

According to estimates, there are about 40,000 Rohingyas living illegally in the country, majorly concentrated in Hyderabad, Jammu, Kanpur and outskirts of Delhi. They have been time-and-again reported to have been indulged in crimes across the country. Although Assam government has started sending them back to their homeland, other states and union government is yet to take a decision regarding the Rohingyas living in other states.
