BGB sends back 166 Rohingyas

BGB patrols intercepted the trespassers at different points along the Naf River and Palongkhali border on early Saturday.

Teknaf 2 BGB Commander Lt Col Abujar Al Zahid said:“We raided six different points of the river around 6am and pushed back at least 165 Rohingyas on 11 boats.”

Meanwhile, a Rohingya was also pushed back from the Palongkhali border, Cox's Bazar BGB 34 Battalion Commanding Officer Lt Col Imran Ullah Sarker said.

Thousands of Rohingya Muslims tried to flee into Bangladesh after Myanmar launched a crackdown in the Rakhine state in response to attacks on its border posts on October 9 that killed nine police officers. Bangladesh has stepped up security along its border with Myanmar to prevent influx of Rohingyas. Rights activists and Rohingyas say more than 80 people have been killed so far and more than 30,000 others have been displaced. Since November, more than 22,000 Rohingyas have entered Bangladesh, the UN said on Friday.
