They will be permitted to enter Bangladesh if they can show papers from Bida and medical reports from India

Benapole Immigration Police in Jessore has sent back 19 Indian nationals to their country as they lacked necessary papers, including medical reports.

They were barred from entering Bangladesh on Monday evening.

All of them work at Rampal Power Plant in Rampal upazila of Bagerhat.

Benapole Immigration Police Officer-in-Charge (OC) Ahsan Kabir said the Indians were sent back as they had no paper from Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (Bida) and medical certificates.

However, they will be permitted to enter Bangladesh if they can show papers from Bida and medical reports from India, he added.

Every country of the world has issued directives over the entry of foreigners due to the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus, Kabir said.

"We have already informed the higher authorities about the matter."

Bangladesh has so far confirmed eight cases of coronavirus. Among them, three new patients, including two children, were tested positive on Monday. The first three coronavirus patients have recovered.

The fast spreading virus, declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), has claimed more than 7,000 lives and infected around 182,000 people across the globe, according to worldometer.
