Indian authorities on Thursday sent back seven Bangladeshi women, who were trafficked to that country two years ago.

The seven were received by the Benapole immigration police at the international land border after India’s Petrapole immigration authorities sent them back on travel permits.

The returnees have been identified as Shirina Bishwash Kuri from Jessore, Anjuman Sumi from Kuri village, Moushumi Akter from Faridpur, Ria Akter from Chittagong, Shohagi akter Mim from Sreepur, Zakia Akter from Khagrachari and Suma Akter from Sunamganj.

All of them are aged between 25 and 30 years.

The Officer-in-Charge of Benapole immigration police, Ahsan Habib said: “the women were produced in a local court that granted them bail. "The women have been taken to a shelter home by NGO Justice and Care."

The women told cops that they had entered India two years ago illegally through brokers and who promised job opportunities there.

Senior program officer of Justice and Care, ABM Muhit Hossain, said that Indian police rescued the women after getting to know that they had fallen into the trap of human traffickers.

The officer said: “The returnees will stay in 14-day institutional quarantine in Jashore for now considering the current Covid situation. After that, we will help them get jobs in Bangladesh”.
