Chittagong Government Railway Police (GRP) rescued three Rohingyas from the Chittagong Railway Station area. The three were being trafficked to India.

Ali Hossain, his wife Sahera Khatun, and their daughter Sabekun Nahar, were rescued on Sunday night.

The police arrested Abdul Mannan, the middleman, a suspected human trafficking syndicate member.

"During primary interrogation, the middleman confessed he promised the Rohingyas he would send them to India for a fee. He brought the Rohingyas all the way from Cox's Bazar to Chittagong Railway Station by road,” said Mostafiz Bhuiyan, Chittagong GRP police station Officer-in-Charge.

The middleman is a cross-border cow trader on the Sylhet-Meghalaya border, he said.
