Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said his country is committed to assisting the safe, speedy and sustainable return of Rohingyas to their homes in Myanmar.

He made India's position clear during a meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her office on Saturday, reports UNB.

Rajnath said India is working on a project to construct prefabricated housing in Rakhine state for the Rohingyas.

India will also continue to provide relief materials to help the Bangladesh government deal with the needs of those in the relief camps, the Indian High Commission in Dhaka said while sharing the outcome of the meeting.

The Indian home minister conveyed the greetings of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Rajnath complimented the prime minister for the excellent growth of Bangladesh's economy under her leadership with a growth rate of 7.78% last year.

The two leaders noted that India and Bangladesh achieved a lot by working together to counter the menace of terrorism and radicalisation.

Rajnath also thanked the prime minister for the cooperation extended by Bangladesh in addressing India's security concerns.

Meanwhile, the Indian home minister and his Bangladesh counterpart Asaduzzaman Khan jointly inaugurated the Bangladesh-India Friendship Building at the Bangladesh Police Academy at Rajshahi Sardah. 

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the prime minister of Bangladesh laid the foundation stone of the building in 2015.

The newly inaugurated facility incorporates state-of-the-art forensic laboratories, mock crime scenes, mock police station and IT centre with computer labs.

Furthermore, a Memorandum of Cooperation was signed between Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, Hyderabad and the Bangladesh Police Academy in Sardah to establish mutual cooperation in the training, management and exchange of trainers and trainees between the two police academies.

The Memorandum of Cooperation was signed by DR Doley Barman, Director, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, Hyderabad and Md Nazibur Rahman, ndc, Addl (IGP), Principal, Bangladesh Police Academy.

This will add yet another dimension to the capacity building programs being organized in India for Bangladesh officials, according to a press release.
