21 illegal immigrants deported to Bangladesh from Assam

The 21 Bangladeshi nationals were taken from the detention centre in Silchar and were handed over to the Border Guards of Bangladesh (BGB).

21 Bangladeshi citizens who have been living illegally in Assam have been deported back to their country by the Indian authorities on Saturday.

According to reports, the 21 Bangladeshis had entered India through the Tripura border two years ago. They had been staying in Assam since then. After their identities have been revealed they had reportedly been detained under the passport violation act and were being kept in the detention centre associated with the Cachar Jail in Silchar.

After receiving approval from the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Bangladeshis were reportedly taken by a special bus to the Sutarkandi Integrated check post along the India- Bangladesh border in the Karimganj district in Assam.

The illegal immigrants were handed over to the Assam Border Police and BSF officials who then handed them over to the Border Guards of Bangladesh (BGB) at the international border.

Two women were also among the 21 persons. 1 person in the group was reportedly a Hindu. As per a report in News 18, their names are Nasir Hussain, Abdul Wahid, Mohammad Khairul, Jahida Begum, Sufia Begum, Mihir Pebel Mia, Safique Islam, Saveel Ahmed, Ramjan Ali, Bablu Ahmed, Suman Fakir, Masum Ahmed, Nazimuddin, Litun Kanti Das, Tofique Ali, Raju Ahmed, Ashraful Alam Chowdhury, Dilwar Hussain, Md Sukkur, Samim Ahmed and Rubel Ahmed.

India has been taking stringent measures to identify and deport illegal immigrants in the country. Thousands of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants have been staying in Assam and the main purpose of the National Registry for Citizenship (NRC) that is being implemented in the state is to identify illegal immigrants who have been threatening the demography of the eastern state.

The porous border in eastern states has been a cause of concern for security agencies over the years. In Tripura, after BJP came to power, CM Biplab Deb has maintained that the Indo-Bangladesh border security will be tightened to stop infiltration and border crimes. Even the BJP CM of Assam had claimed that the India-Bangladesh border in Assam will be sealed off completely by the end of 2018.
