Update : 05 Sep 2017, 05:00 PM
A total of 2,678 Rohingyas, who were trying to enter Bangladesh from different points of Ukhia and Teknaf upazilas of Cox’s Bazar district, have been sent back to Myanmar. Members of Coast Guard and Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) sent them back Tuesday morning, said Cox’s Bazar Additional District Magistrate Khaled Mahmud. Earlier on Monday, Members of Coast Guard arrested over 2000 Rohingyas from some houses at St Martin’s island and sent them back to Myanmar. Rohingyas, who have been sent back, included women, children and elderly people. In October last year, Rohingyas tried to intrude into Bangladesh in the same way after violent clashes broke out in Rakhine state. This year, thousands of Rohingyas have already started gathering at Bangladesh border as fresh fighting erupted in Rakhine state between militants and security forces.
