'It was beyond our imagination that thousands of Ronhingyas would cross over to Bangladesh overnight'

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said initiatives have taken to erect barbed-wire fences to stop the Rohingyas from fleeing the camps.

Apart from that, steps are being taken to avert any untoward incident inside the Rohingya camps.   

He made the disclosure while talking to reporters following a prize-giving ceremony of Bangladesh Police Women Network (BPWN) held at International Convention Centre at Kazir Dewri area of the port city, on Thursday.

"We can vividly remember that thousands of Rohingyas were waiting on the other side of Naf river to enter into Bangladesh. Now we are facing a challenge with the Rohingyas. They are fleeing the camps. However, the law enforcing agencies are bringing them back to the camps," he added.

"It was beyond our imagination that thousands of Ronhingyas would cross over to Bangladesh overnight. Some necessary measures could have been taken if the influx could have been predicted.”

With Chittagong Metropolitan Police Commissioner Mahabubur Rahman in the chair, the ceremony was also addressed by Chittagong City Corporation Mayor AJM Nasir Uddin, Waseka Ayesha Khan MP, and Inspector General of Police Md Jabed Patwary, among others.

At the ceremony, a total of 10 police officers, including nine females, and a male, were awarded in recognition of their outstanding performance.
