Considering the sufferings of the Bangladeshis still stranded in India, three more land ports are scheduled to be reopened for their entry from India from May 16 in addition to Benapole, Burimari and Akhaura.

The new land ports are Darshana, Hili, and Sonamasjid.

The decision was taken on Wednesday in an inter-ministerial meeting chaired by Foreign Secretary (Senior Secretary) Masud Bin Momen.

As the facilities for quarantine under the district administration of Jessore have been exhausted, entry through the Benapole might be suspended for the time being.
