Agartala: The jawans of 150 battalion of BSF detained three Rohingya young girls at Harihardola village of Kamalasagar in Tripura’s Sepahijala district on Satuday and later handed them over to the police.
They crossed Indo-Bangladesh border with help from a human trafficker after fleeing from a refugee camp in Chittagong Hill Tracts.
Police said they have been produced before the court seeking their remand for further investigation.
Bangladeshi infiltrators and Rohingiyas have used the bordering villages of the district as a corridor for their cross-border movement taking advantage of the close proximity of Indian villages and human activities along the international border.
The detainees told police they had entered Indian Territory through a broken part of barbed wire fencing in an area under Kalam Chaura police station. They were caught by BSF and were handed over to Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB).
However, after being released by BGB and Bangladesh police they made a fresh attempt to enter through Harihardola in Kamalasagar and were caught again by BSF. Police tracked the link of some Indian human traffickers in the racket to bring them to India to send them to other cities of the country.
