Meanwhile, 31 Rohingya Muslims continue to be stranded at the India-Bangladesh border in Tripura as both sides refuse to accept them. Bangladesh claims that the Rohingyas crossed over from India while the BSF claims that there’s no breach on the Indian side.

The Indian government has continued to maintain a strong stance on Rohingyas. Recently, it was reported that 1300 Rohingyas had fled to Bangladesh from India fearing deportation to Myanmar.

In October last year, Seven Rohingya Muslims who were lodged in jail since 2012 for illegally entering India were sent to Myanmar border for deportation. The government has also 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.
